How to stop date (user function) from recalculating

How to stop date (user function) from recalculating

Question:
I have created a function that will retrieve the current date and time, and put it in the heading of all my reports. We store our reports as blobs in an Oracle database so the user can retrieve a prior report for research, but when a prior report is retrieved, the function recalculates the date, and the date on the report is changed to the current (today’s) date. Is there a way to stop this?

Answer:
There is a way, although it requires that you do not use theToday() and Now() PowerScript functions.

Add the current date/time to the result set of the report and use thatfor display throughout the report.
