For PowerExchange to read or write date-time values in the user's local time, the user's local time zone must be defined in the TZINFO member of the Adabas source library.
If you do not use the TIMEZONE statement, PowerExchange reads and writes Adabas date-time values in Coordinated Universal Time (UTC). UTC is the time in which Adabas stores date-time values when the TZ option is specified.
For CDC sessions, the TIMEZONE statement is ignored and PowerExchange always reads and writes Adabas date-time values in UTC.
IMPORTANT: PowerExchange cannot convert UTC date-time values to the local time for CDC sessions. If you run a CDC session and a bulk data movement session for which you specified a local time zone against the same Adabas sources or targets, these sessions might have inconsistent date-time values.
