Hi All,,,

How to I Display a Date Text Box on a Form to show as dd/mm/yyyy?

Knowing that this Text Box is Bound  to a field in the table which I want to keep as General Formatted and it uses the Date Picker.

Thanks  Als / Gustav,,,

Although I tried that many times before, now it worked.

I hope this will keep the stored value as it is i.e. "General Date"  or shall I make it "Short Text".
I like to keep the fraction part as I may need it later for some other comparisons.

Thanks a lot.
