ms access input mask MM/DD/YYYY
Hi Im working in the UK creating a MS Access application. I have a textfield which will take in the date of something based on this format: MM/DD/YYYY. However as I'm in the UK it uses the Short Date format of DD/MM/YYYY. How do I ensure it uses MM/DD/YYYY? Will it do this automatically if the application is opened in the states? Or do I have to provide an Input Mask and some VB code to sort it? Thanks
Sorted it - if you create a textfield and then change its format to MM/DD/YYYY - this will change whatever you enter into the American format - so for example you entered the UK format (DD/MM/YYYY) as 12/03/2012 this would change to 3/12/2012. This solved my problem but others may arise if you wished to compare two date values or something. Hope this helps...
