FileMaker Pro 16.0.3.302

Mac OS 10.13.2 and Windows 10 pro

 

I have download a db from US.

I noticed that setting a varialble or a text field with get(currentDate) still use the US notation (m/d/y) instead of the Italian one (d/m/y), even if the system format was set to Use System Format (forced in the file options).

Changing the the setting in using or not the Use System Format does not made any difference.

 

Workaround
save a clone of the file, run it and reload the data
