NAME ^

Win32::SqlServer::DTS::DateTime - DateTime Perl object built from Win32::OLE Variant values

SYNOPSIS ^

    use Win32::SqlServer::DTS::DateTime;
        use Win32::OLE::Variant;

        my $variant = Variant( VT_DATE, "April 1 99" );

        my $date = Win32::SqlServer::DTS::DateTime->new($variant);

DESCRIPTION ^

Extends the DateTime class constructor (new method) to create a DateTime object that is equal to a Win32::OLE::Variant object.

Some classes in DTS distribution have methods that returns date/time values, but as Variants. Win32::SqlServer::DTS::DateTime objects are used as substitutes.

Most attributes returned as date/time variants from DTS API original classes are read-only, so beware that changing a Win32::SqlServer::DTS::DateTime object attribute because, as long as it seems to work, it will not save the state in the DTS package: the Win32::SqlServer::DTS::DateTime is "disconnected" from the original date/time variant.

EXPORT

Nothing.

METHODS

new

Expects a Win32::OLE::Variant date object as a parameter.
