    Can you please point me to a description of how to interpret the Date/Time Stamp field in the log table? And/or an Excel formula to convert it to an Excel Date/Time “serial number.” This would be of great help in analyzing the log file.

    Hi DonHaggard!

    If you mean field “stamp” in the DB table it is Unix GMT timestamp with microsecond precision. Do you want to get it in some specific format? What is Excel Date/Time “serial number.”?

    Yes “stamp” in the DB table is the field to which I referred. Your response will help.

    The Microsoft Excel Date/Time “serial number” is described here. I will work on finding a similar description of the Unix timestamp and then see if I can come up with a formula to convert it to an equivalent Excel value. Excel will then be able to display the value in any desired Date/Time format.

    Thanks for the response.

    For now you can use an approach like this:
