How to get text variable to display 24-hour time

I use 24 hour time on my computer as in 1:00 p.m. = 13:00. For my print projects, I made a small table with the file name and last saved text variables and other information that I save as a snippet and insert in the slug area to help keep up with versions. The time variable displays in 12 hour time. I've looked in preferences to see if I can switch it to 24 hour time, but find no options. My question is: Is there a way to get the time in the last saved text variable to display in 24-hour time. I can live without it, but it would be nice.

Thanks to those who know more than me,

Joe

Go to Type > Text Variables > Define. Choose the variable you're using and click on the Edit button. In the Date Format field, choose Time > Hour  (00-23).
