Date formatting tip

Postby QuadraQ » Fri Aug 30, 2013 4:54 pm

Using the format string "MMddyy" for Date fields in DycoDoc doesn't parse the date, but instead prints "MMddyy". Adding constant character separators like '/' or '-' works, but a six character date is a valid case and still used by many. To get this to work place the '%' character in front of each format specifier like this "%MM%dd%yy" Hopefully this is helpful to anyone looking for a way to format very short dates!
