This is a known issue with the recent release of Lion (OS.10.7)
For More Information see: Filemaker Pro 11 and Lion (10.7) Gold Master
This is one of many acknowledged bugs that can be found in the Known Bug List here in the Report an Issue section of the forum.
It can also be downloaded as a database file from: http://www.4shared.com/file/8orL8apk/FMP_Bugs.html
I just downloaded and installed 11.04 - date-format is now ok here. (Swiss German, Lion/10.7). On FileMaker 10.x, the date shows just like on Your screenshot (same file; I don't have other FM versions on that 'Lion'-machine)
btw: With 11.04, the date shows as '15.Mär 2011'
Thank you for your post.
I am also unable to replicate the problem, which I know doesn't help you.
If you create a new database file with a date field, and enter the date, do you get the same problem? If possible, I would like to see your database file. Check your Inbox at the top of this page for instructions where to send the file.
I want to thank the people contributing to this question.
In fact, I experience this problem in one file; in another, the date is displayed fine.
I will create a new file and test the behaviour next week (time is sparse) and will get back to the forum with my findings.
You might try recovering the file to see if that makes a difference...
Thank you for your posts.
In case you have missed it, FileMaker Pro 11.0v4 has been released and addresses this issue. To download the update, see Knowledge Base Article #9910 at:
