Hello Hans,
With the updated version of Fox this works PERFECTLY for me. What I wanted was 
> (:fox frm target="{$$abc}-{(ftime fmt=%y%m%d%H%M%S {$$MeetingTime)}" :)
where MeetingTime is a text input in the form.  So I do not care when the ftime expression is evaluated. 
Thanks for your quick support.
