Hi
I know about the formating etc
I would like to create a formulae something like:

ToDate ({WO.REQUESTDATE})

The current field {WO.REQUESTDATE} is set to date/time and I want it set to Date

if your datatime is a formula then use

ToText({MyDate}, "dd-MMM-yyyy") or something similar

if your datetime is a field I suggest you to use other format option

Do you intend to use your formula for display or in the record selection criteria?  If you use it in the record selection criteria then it won't be passed to the database server for processing.  How are you going to use the formula?
