Help me. XLS FORM: TIME

Hi to everybody

I have a problem with my xlsform. If I insert the Time as question, when I
fill the question with for example 07:00, the result that I find in the
answer is 05:00. It means that all the times in the filled forms are wrong
and they are all two hours behind the time you entered. How can I solve
this problem?

And another question, why if I insert Date as a question, in the filled
forms I have both Date and time (the time is always 00:00). I want only the
date and not the time in this field.

thanks

Laura

Laura,

If you are looking for an alternative, use selects (e.g. from 00-23
for hours) or integers with constraints to capture time. You can use
something similar for dates, but if you aren't careful, you risk
getting an invalid date (e.g.. Feb 29th on a non-leap year).

Hi, thank you very much for your answer. How can I insert the 'Captured
time' selection?
I copy here my xls form. The row is 7.

Laura,

Use two selects that are wrapped with a group with the field-list
appearance. For hour, use a select with choices that range from 00-23. For
minute, use a select with choices that range from 00-59.
