Setting variant display language for dates?
I've been attempting to find out how to display dates in English in one layout but Danish in a separate layout for the same database.
I give out assignments to both Danes and international students, but have my setting in 'International' as Danish - for local reasons. Some of my databases are purely Danish and need Danish.
I mean long dates: Turn in by "Monday, March 11", rather than Turn in by "mandag, d 11 marts".
How can I set the field in a particular layout to use a particular language - and the format according to relevant custom?
I use FM10.0v1 on a MacBookPro running OX 10.6.2
I don't think this is possible using the built-in date formatting. You will need to use a calculation field with a text result to display the "other language" long date.
Another interesting possibility (which I haven't tried) could be using another file to show the English layout.
