Change job submit time to include milliseconds for precision.

Job submit time to include milliseconds for precision. Instead of HH:MM:SS, make it like 12:29:05.1234. This will enable this column to be used as a unique identifier when generating data in an incremental fashion. We are extracting the RTM data a...
