Date/time variable rounding (Q864)

The information in this article applies to: 
SIMCA 14
Summary: 

When a variable is imported as Date/Time in SIMCA, the entire date and time is converted to a float value using 32-bit precision. When converting this value back to date and time, the displayed value is sometimes not exactly as in the original file. Differences of 1 second are not unusual. 

Status: 

Fixed in SIMCA 14.1.

More Information: 

This imprecision may cause small differences in Q2 and other vectors, but these differences are generally not large enough to influence the interpretations.
