If you set properties of the SPFieldDateTime class you must call the Update method for changes to take effect in the database.

The SPFieldDateTime class corresponds to the DateTime data type that is specified through the Type attribute of the Field element.

Notes to Inheritors

In Windows SharePoint Services 3.0, columns based on custom field types do not appear in Datasheet view and are not included when you export a list to an Excel spreadsheet.

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
