Synopsis

                    DateConvert(type, date)

Converts date to Universal Coordinated Time (UTC) or UTC to local time based on type (local2UTC or UTC2Local). Conversions for daylight savings time are automatically applied if enabled on the server running ColdFusion. For information on how ColdFusion MX handles two-digit years, see CreateDate( ). The following example converts local time to UTC time:

<cfset TheTimeDate = Now( )>
<cfset UCT = DateConvert('local2UTC', TheTimeDate)>
   
<cfoutput>
<b>Current time/date:</b> #TimeFormat(TheTimeDate,'hh:mm:ss tt')#, 
#DateFormat(TheTimeDate,'mmmm dd, yyyy')#
<p><b>UCT:</b> #UCT#
</cfoutput>
