    Thanks Amit. That worked.

    Now, I am trying to plot data for certain date/time period. e.g. last 5 minutes, last 30 minutes, last hour, last day etc.

    Since these are not aggregated data, probably I won't be able use out of day functions.

    As these data can have 12 samples within a minute (5 sec interval).

    How can i generate charts which shows only last five minutes of data?

    I tried using lt_TimeStamp as a prompt to enter a data/time but it did not work. Looks like format of lt_TimeStamp is different than the prompt value. So the comparison does not work for e.g. lt_Time_stamp greater than <Date prompt>

    Now that prompt date format (2/11/2019 8:52:41 PM) is different than lt_TimeStamp (2019/02/11 18:10:20) and probably that's the reason it does not work right.
