     Updated 12-APR 2005! Add UTC time offset from Local time and formats Time / Date based on country/regional settings. Function module for getting UTC (GMT) time and date. Demo program shows how UTC functions relate to standard VB time/date functions. Being a Ham Radio and Shortwave geek, I needed UTC time a lot for logging and schedule time conversions. Comments welcome

Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
