One more detail

Maybe I was a bit misleading, I just checked once agian, and it looks like there is na influence on the report, but not on form. I changed format on test system back to mm-dd-yyyy and did convert to runtime.

Attached is the influence on such setting on form and report. Obviously on fom level local (windows) setting is taken, but on report level unix setting is stronger (probably since report is created on server).

So in fact it should work, at least on my server, report is taking datecurr setting and ignoring local windows setting. But I didn't check the behaviour of BW print

Display date format working or not?

Hi Justone

Thanks for your 2 replies.
In our local country, we use dd/mm/yyyy which is similar to yours.
I'm more concern on the PO, SO, Production and Inventory display (i.e not concern on report).
User may key-in wrongly in LN6 because 3/4/11 may means 3 April 2011 or 4 March 2011 depend on the local client PC setting.
In Baan4, it is not a problem.

You asked me what is my local(i.e client) PC (windows) setting?
There is no one my setting but many local client PC setting depending on the user.
We have many various for MANY local client PC(s) (windows) as it depends on whatever setting by users themselves.
But in Baan4, it is not a problem as all the local client PCs follows the Baan4 systems whereby Session Software Language date format which key-in as Day,Week, Month, Year.
Also in Baan4 HP-Unix server OS is setup for our country date format of dd/mm/yyyy.
Outcome: OK as all the Purchase, Sales, Production Orders and Inventory dates are displayed as dd/mm/yyyy.

But in LN6, which setup is exactly as Baan4 (including Session Software Language date format which key-in Day,Week, Month, Year).
And even the LN6 HP-Unix server is setup for our country date format of dd/mm/yyyy.
Outcome: FAIL as all the Purchase, Sales, Production Orders and Inventory dates are NOT displayed as dd/mm/yyyy.
It display in many various date format which according to whatever the users' local(i.e client) PC (windows) setting.

Based on your 2nd reply subject, "one more detail".
Correct me if I'm wrong that yours (for PO,SO,Production,Inventory "display" date) is actually not working (similarly to my condition)?

If yours really work using UNIX OS for the LN6, I hope you can further help me by explaining more detail to me.
(i.e all local client PCs to follow LN6 system, will display date dd/mm/yyyy in PO, SO, Production and Inventory date so that it can prevent user key-in error).

Hi all,

I would like to pick up on this old thread as I am facing a similar challenge now.

We would like to set up the date formats per country rather than per language which seems impossible in LN (FP7).

Brad, or anyone else, were you able to find any solution for this?
