Getting Data In

How to detect the beginning/ending of Daylight Savings Time?

Communicator

I have a report in which a date/time field is converted from GMT to MST/MDT, depending on if it is currently in Daylight Savings Time. Since DST ends/begins on a different date every year, how do automatically change which timezone to convert to in the query?
