I have a custom object to import records in which I have two fields. one is Date type and another is DateTime type. for Date type field I am using dd/mm/yyyy format. So I added useEuropean format as true. In that case I am getting "minus one day" problem in date, but date time field is getting correct value. When I add timezone as GMT I found date is populating correct but now in datetime field time is getting -5:30 hrs.
I have also tried to change in system's locale time zone change as GMT/UTC but there is no impact on time.
Please let me know what are the changes required.
