Importing date/time values Considerations when importing data containing date/time values. The field containing the date/time value should be a Date/Time type field in the target table. The user performing the import should have their timezone (in the Time zone [time_zone] field in the User [sys_user] record for that user) set to match the timezone of the date/time values in the import file.To set the user timezone, do the following. Click the user drop-down in the banner and select Profile. Change the Time zone field value to the timezone of the date/time values in the import file and click Update.
