CONVERT_TZ

Converts a given datetime object from one timezone to another.

CONVERT_TZ (dateobj, oldtz, newtz)

Arguments

Info

Timezone identifiers may be explicit intervals or named zones. Explicit intervals are in the form +10:00 or -3:30 and are counted from UTC. Named timezones are in the form America/Mazatlan or EST.

The list of supported timezone names derive from the memsql_timezones.txt file in the share directory of your MemSQL installation directory. The timezone names do not derive from any settings on the host operating system.

Return Type

A DATE or DATETIME object. If date_obj, old_tz, or new_tz is not valid, returns NULL.
