      Get(CurrentDate) format issue

      Post

      Hi

      When I use a basic get(CurrentDate) script, the data in the field is in the format M/D/Y. I want it to be displayed as D/M/Y. This happens even if I have the field properties set up to the 'correct' format.

      Points to bear in mind:

      My Mac is set to British time and date format.

      Field is set to Date

      Field properties in Inspector is set to the format I want.

       

      Does anyone know of anyway of altering Filemaker's default formats for this sort of thing?I think this may be occurring as the databse was set up originally on a pc/mac with the American date format...

      Thank you
