Dropdown Calendar error


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version

Mac OSX 10.6.6

Description of the issue

Hallo there,
I have a dropdown calender set up in a layout and it always worked fine. I click on any date in the calendar and the chosen date is written into the field in dd/mm/yyyy format with "/" as a separator, as set.
Since a couple of days when I click on any chosen date, the date is writte as "dd mm yyyy" and the following error is reported in a window <> cause it obviously reads the number entered as ex. 25 12 2003 which is bigger than 4000 (I suppose this the "thinking" behind it)... what's the cause of this error? How to correct it???
Thank you.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Click on any date in a dropdown calendar window

Expected result

"printing" of the chosen date in the field as "dd/mm/yyyy"

Actual result

"dd mm yyyy" and error as described above

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

The value of this field must be a valid date in the range of years 1 to 4000 and should look like “25/12/2003”.
