Hi,

I'm currenlty printing out the date in the formula listed below:

 ' beginning on '
+ ToText({CLASS_SCHEDULE.SCHD_DATE})

On most users machine the result is:

beginning on 12/18/2001

The problem comes in on a users machine where the the result shows:

beginning on 01/12/18


Any ideas as to why this is happening??


Thanks in advance!!!!!

You need to close out you very overdue questions.  34 asked, only 18 closed.  Some going back months.

Check his default windows date format.  
  START -> SETTINGS  ->  CONTROL PANEL  ->  REGIONAL SETTINGS  ->  DATE tab

It is probably set as yy/mm/dd.

You can either fix it on his machine or better yet fix the report by formatting the field with the date in it.

good luck

I believe you can use the format command in the formula.
