Sorry Mark and Richard. Here is the real code snipit that includes a hack that seems to work:

if not(theenvironmentisamongtheitems"development,standalone application") then
    subtract(4*60*60) fromit
end if
convertit todateitems

Mark, in your situation, you and the server are in the same timezone so I would not expect to see a problem. I have no idea where my server is, but it must not be in my timezone. I am guessing on the west coast since taking off 4 hours seems to fix the problem.

It still does not make any sense why a timezone comes into play at all.

Here is the silly little app: Http:// It has been really cold here the last few days and I was not able to cycle, so this was a fun diversion. Seems to work, but it has not had much testing. And as you can see I know next to nothing about making things look nice in html.

Sorry guys, I must not have been clear in my statement of the problem.
Here is the code:

put 1489755600 into tVar
convert tVar into dateitems
 -- on the mac tVar contains 2017,3,17,9,0,0,6
 -- on the server tVar contains 2017,3,17,12,0,0,6

The local time should not be involved since you are converting a fixed
value.  What is happening?

Sorry - I can't replicate that.
With the desktop and server engines running on the same machine,

put 1489755600 into tVar
convert tVar into dateitems

gives me
IDE message box: 2017,3,17,6,0,0,6
server:          2017,3,17,6,0,0,6

Note that "convert into" is not supported.
It might be better to post the code you're actually using.
