Adabas uses GMT timestamps in the Protection Log (PLOG) records and CA PLEU uses the timestamp from the PLOG records which makes the selection criteria for CA PLEU reporting difficult to correlate with the local user time references.


The CA PLEU GLOBALS parameter LOCALTIME can be used to convert the GMT timestamp found in the Adabas PLOG records to the user's local time.

Valid LOCALTIME values contain an E or W in the first position followed by the number of time zones, 1 though 12, in a given direction. "E" indicates a time zone East of Greenwich and "W" for time zones West of Greenwich.

For example, the following statement subtracts 5 hours from the PLOG timestamp:


And this example adds 2 hours to the reported time:
