The simplest is just to format the auto-entered creation date to just display the month or just the year.
Enter these as an auto-entered calculation:
MonthName( get ( CurrentDate ) )
Year ( get ( CurrentDate ) )
Thanks that worked perfectly!
Just curious how would you format the auto-entered creation date to display the month or just the year?
In layout mode, select the date field. Use Format | Date... to give the field a custom date format.
In one of my databases, I've formatted the date field to show MM - YYYY instead of MM/DD/YYYY.
I realize this is an old thread...but it is my exact problem. I followed these directions exactly...actually I originally just copied these fields from a Startup Solution...but when I open to Browse mode, the field is empty. I'm trying to get the month name and year for the current date. Using FM Pro 13.
