I would like to know how to change Date formats. For example, I would like to see Aug 24, 2001 instead of 08/24/01 on my bill of lading. I have tried to change the format through my control panel but that does not work. Please help.
Actually you CAN do it through the control panel, by changing the Short Date Format to “MMMM d yyyy”. This will however affect the display of dates in a lot of places in your computer. To chaange the date format in a single report, you edit the source expression of the textbox that displays the value. Change i.e “Sales Header”.“Shipment Date” to FORMAT(“Sales Header”.“Shipment Date”,0,’ , <Year,4>’). You might need to increase the width of the tex box control as well. Happy hunting! Pelle
