"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I believe I found it
alter session set nls_date_format ='MM/DD/YYYY';

I'm not a Forms person but it looks like nls_date_format can be overridden inside the apps themselves.

Take a look at the link below.

It references a couple of Oracle Support docs as well as talking about setting default masks in the apps themselves.

bcarlis, your answer will temporarily affect the client session.  The better answer is to go to the eBS home page, select User Preferences (top right), drill down to and set your user date format.
