    The idea: Import support and data entry (See also Default Date Format ) support for ISO 8601 formatted dates.  Including specifically FMP to recognize the YYYY-MM-DD and YYYYMMDD formats for import.

     

    At present, this is not supported, whereas it is a widely-use format. It will strongly improve FMP's compatibility with other database systems.

     

    beverly rightly insisted on this point in the thread Wish list for extended calendar support

     

    Many thanks to (in order of appearance in the thread to) CamelCase_data, Computor, beverly, TorstenBernhard, historychef, and mardikennedy for their help
