I need to change the system time to a time in Customer's time zone. The Customer's time zone can be found from TTZ5S. Is there a function module that will change to another time zone ??

Hello Reshmi,

If you are in a system greater than 4.6 you can use timestamp to do that:

DATA:

f type timestamp.

GET TIME STAMP FIELD f.

The target field f contains the global reference time UTC (Universal Time Coordination) from now, like sy-datum and sy-uzeit but in UTC. This corresponds to Greenwich Mean Time.

Then you convert to user time zone using command:

CONVERT TIME STAMP f TIME ZONE tz INTO DATE d TIME t.

In field "tz" you specify the user time zone you want.

tz must be type sy-zonlo.

Regards,

Mauricio

I'm not sure if there is a function that will do it but it is easy to create one. Look up CONVERT and TIMESTAMP in the ABAP help.
