Spread DateTime Cell fraction of a second mask

    I have the following code assigning the formatting to a DateTime object on a bound query to the database.  The default behavior is to show the Date time as MM/dd/yyyy.  I am looking for millisecond resolution.  I am using Spread 4.0 for forms.  The docs indicate that the UserDefined format takes all the formatting of a .NET DateTimeFormatInfo object, which supports fff for fraction of a second.  When I run the code, my dates and times are formatted correctly except the fff is not converted.  It just shows "2009/11/14 00:00:00.fff".  Any ideas on what I am doing incorrectly?

    FarPoint.Win.Spread.CellType.DateTimeCellType dateTimeCellType
    = new FarPoint.Win.Spread.CellType.DateTimeCellType();

    = FarPoint.Win.Spread.CellType.DateTimeFormat.UserDefined;

    dateTimeCellType.UserDefinedFormat = "yyyy/MM/dd HH:mm:ss:fff";

    spdResults.ActiveSheet.Columns[3].CellType = dateTimeCellType;

    spdResults.ActiveSheet.Columns[3].Width = 130;

    Milliseconds are currently not supported in our DateTimeCellType. They should work correctly in our GeneralCellType. It has been entered as a possible enhancement for a future version to support this format in the DateTimeCellType.

    Thank you for the response.  That was my next approach. (GeneralCellType)
