I wrote a short program under VEE 3.12 to create a dataset with four records.
The first field of the record contained an integer, the second contained the
value of "now()".  I wrote out the dataset, then wrote a simple program under
VEE 4.01 to read back the records. 

I saw no problems (and no bug resembling this was fixed from VEE 4.0).  Do
you have any details?

Please stay in touch.
