@DATEFMT[date,format] - Formats a date/time in a custom format.

 

date - The date to format (in yyyy-mm-dd hh:mm:ss format). If date is *, @DATEFMT defaults to the current date/time. Valid dates are January 1, 1970 (1970-1-1) to December 31, 3000 (3000-12-31). The time must be in 24-hour format.

 

format - The custom format to use. (Note that the %'s will normally need to be doubled or escaped to prevent TCC from expanding them before @DATEFMT sees them.) The formatting options are:

The ISO 8601 week and week-based year produced by %V, %g, and %G, uses a week that begins on Monday, where week 1 is the week that contains January 4th, which is the first week that includes at least four days of the year. If the first Monday of the year is the 2nd, 3rd, or 4th, the preceding days are part of the last week of the preceding year. For those days, %V is replaced by 53, and both %g and %G are replaced by the digits of the preceding year.
