What's the format of the @timestamp variable in SSRS?

I need to write a routine that will find the latest report published by SQL Server Reporting Services. I know the filename and that it’ll contain the @timestamp variable, but I cannot find what’s its format and the customer hasn’t provided any test files yet. Do you know whether it’s an int or a datetime etc?

Microsoft doesn’t reveal it in its documentation here where it’s mentioned: https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/sql/reporting-services/subscriptions/file-share-delivery-in-reporting-services?view=sql-server-ver16#bkmk_file_options

>Solution :

The @timestamp subscription variable is in yyyy_MM_dd_HHmmss format, as you can see from this example tutorial: https://www.techbrothersit.com/2014/07/ssrs-how-to-create-ssrs-report-with.html
