When Get ( CurrentDate ) is converted to a text string (either by using GetAsText, or concatenating it with some other string), the date format seems to use a system setting cached at the time of the file creation, even if the file is currently configured to "always use current system settings".

See attached file, which I assume was originally created when my system settings were configured as DD/MM/YYYY. Now the text version of Get ( CurrentDate ) uses that format, rather than my current system settings.

Toggling the File Options dialog between "current system settings" and "file's saved settings" has no effect.
