Good Morning! Experts.
  I have one simple question. I have created a date field with date/time set, computed for display and @Created, workd perfect
  But, when I try it in view with Date column sorted ascending and advanced format tab is set at date/time, it is not giving me any display. Thanks for your help in advance.

Depending on the Notes-version you have (R5??) there can be problems with view columns (same column name used twice, e.g. if you duplicate a column). Otherwise, it should be a run-of-the-mill job. Try to make a new view with only a few columns in it,  but at least the date column. Did you check the Document Properties if the field was correctly filled??

From designer view sometimes you cannot see any changes , view it in client after saving the view !!

I have Notes 6. Yes, the field has date/time, computed when composed and On display tab I had both date and time checked.

Just to be certain: check whether your date column has a unique name, compared to all other columns in the view. What happens if you replace the field (name correctly used?) with a fixed value?

I tried using company name on the date field and it gave a display with their names. In my document I have two fields names fld_date(@Created) and fld_createddate(computed field based on userrole). In view, I only use fld_date.

You are using "computed for display" : you can't use that in a view, because the value is not saved on the document.

In the view, use @created directly (in the view column)

cheers,

Tom
