Problem with file time format

Question asked by vittofm on Jan 10, 2012

I've been developing a solution for a customer of mine for many years.

 

I use FM 10 Pro Advanced.

 

When I update the solution, I usually create an empty file and import data from the customer's backup

 

I never had problems, 'til I upgraded my Mac Pro to Lion.

 

The file format for "hour" fileds has always been hh.mm

 

Now, with Lion, I cannot enter values in time fields with the desired hh.mm format. Both in Mac and Windows (several versions tested) File Maker asks for the hh:mm:ss format, and there's no way to go back to the previous situation. I tried to test the file options related to system formatting options in several ways but with no success.

I cannot accept the new situation because hh.mm format is used in tons of script and controls.

 

Can anybody help me? How can I set the file input format for time fileds back to hh.mm?

 

Thanks
