Custom TimeStamp datatype designed to handle internal FILEMAN format TimeStamp (CYYMMDD.HHMMSS).
This data type projects proper TIMESTAMP meta data to DISPLAY and ODBC Client software.
It does not require any extra routines to function
1/0 flag which determines if the LogicalToFormat conversions will process imprecise logical FileMan Date values
Default setting is STRICTDATA=0
Parameter affects the generation of the LogicalToDisplay and LogicalToOdbc methods
When STRICTDATA=1, imprecise or invalid dates will not be changed to a valid FileMan Date value.
For example, if Logical FileMan Date value is 31110, when STRICTDATA=0 this will translate to 3111001 (Sept 01, 2011).
If STRICTDATA=1, this transformation will not take place and the invalid/imprecise Logical value will get an error when converted to Display or Odbc format.
Converts Storage FileMan TIMESTAMP (CYYMMDD.HHMMSS) with possible trailing 0's to a Logical canonical value without trailing 0's
This is needed so that values with trailing zeros and without can all be compared with ]] properly (they will all be treated as numeric values).
LogicalTo**** methods will handle the missing trailing zeros to produce the correct time
