      Description of the issue

      File created on filemaker pro advanced 13 and is hosted on a windows 2012 server with File Options Date set to use system settings. Server is set to display date as dd/mm/yyyy, and users in Mexico accessing through Web Direct with system settings also set to dd/mm/yyyy are experiencing issues where an error is given asking them to input date as mm/dd/yyyy.

      change File Options to use system settings
      Configure for filemaker web direct
      upload to filemaker server 13 and host
      set server date format to dd/mm/yyy
      access file via web direct using google chrome and attempt to set a date manually in format dd/mm/yyyy

      Expected result

      Actual result
