Transient data set time values are displayed in the Time Step Window using either a relative time format (e.g., 100.0) or an absolute date/time format (e.g., 1/12/2006 3:23:48).

Zero Time

The zero time represents the date/time corresponding to time t=0. If a data set does not have an assigned reference time, it will use the global zero time as its reference time.

Absolute Date/Time

When the display format is set to Absolute Date/Time, a date/time is shown in the Time Step Window. The date and time format can also be specified.

Relative Time

When the display format is set to Relative Time, the days, hours, minutes, and seconds from the data set reference time is shown in the Time Step Window. The display format for days, hours, minutes, and seconds can be specified. If a decimal format is chosen, the precision can also be specified.

Changing Time Settings

To change the time settings, select the menu command Edit | Time Settings or right click on the time step window in the Project Explorer and select "Time Settings" to open the Time Setting dialog.
