I am developing reports using TQRExpr to print a date field from a Paradox7 table. The date format that I require must be 'yyyy/mm/dd'.

Hi dealer,

TQRExpr has very limited functions, and can only deal with simple
expression. I do not think you can present your date though that
TQRExpr.

I will add a calculated TDataTime field for my table or query, all the calculation can be done there. The field add can has a
"DisplayFormat" property which equals "yyyy/mm/dd". After that I
can use a TQRDBText to present it. Remember to set the "DateSeparator" system variable to "/"(DateSeparator:='/').

Waldek,
I used the OnNeededDataEvent to set the display format for both a TQRExpr to print a date and a currency value and it worked fine. Thanks for the help.
