Hello! I am trying to capture the time stamp of when the user opens the file ONLY. I have the field set to capture the date, but I need to keep that time from continuously updating. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

See https://experienceleaguecommunities.adobe.com/t5/adobe-livecycle-questions/need-a-date-time-field-to...

and generally in the initialization event of your time field (and your date field too) put some logic that prevents update if the field is filled. The initial state of a field NOT being prefilled by data is null.

Something like

if ($ == null) then
    $.rawValue = Num2Time(Time(), "HH:MM:SS")
endif
Does the trick (Note: this is FormCalc and not Javascript as FomrCalc has better time/date support - but you could code in JS too, same princip)
