show imported Bento date as date rather than timestamp?
Noobie question from a Bento graduate:
When FMPro-10 imports a Bento Library, a Bento date field seems to come in as a FM Timestamp field, in that it shows both date and time.
What is an easy way to get FM to show just the date portion?
(I'd like to maintain the fields/types that FM automatically created when first importing Bento, so that I can continue to use both Bento and FM -- and continue to update my FM database from my Bento database. At least until I finally commit to using just FM.)
OK, I answered my own question:
Created a new Calculation field called Date_converted. Set it equal to Date field and set the result type to "date". Then I use Date_converted in my layouts, rather than Date.
