Inspection lot creation time

Hi all,

What are the differences between ENTSTEZEIT and ERSTELZEIT in table QALS? They both mean "lot created at" but have different values, in my system ERSTELZEIT is 6 hours larger than ENTSTEZEIT. If I want to see at what time the Inspection lot was created, which field should I chose?

    I'll check my system in the morning but I believe it might be related to the time zone differences.  I.e. one might be the server time, (ERSTELZEIT), the lot was created and the other might the lot creation time in the users time zone. (ENTSTEZEIT).  If the lot was created close to midnight, you might also see differences between the lot creation date fields too.

    This document explains this and actually shows an example for an inspection lot in QM at the very bottom of the page. It indicates one is the creation time in the server's time zone.

    • The easiest way is to manually create a lot, write down both times from QALS.  Wait a few minutes, then go in and make a UD.  The UD time should only be offset a few minutes from one time or the other.  Than you'll know how to write your program spec.

    Hi Danny,

    I agree with Craig, This is due to time zone differences.

    Go to STZAC and make sure that bothe time zones are same.
