INPUTFIELD: Date changes to Number via Chrome


Has anybody seen\have an answer to this issue?

I am looking to use:

INPUTFIELD [Start Date];

To allow a field to be used for input\change the value.

On my local client everything is fine and the with something like:

     Start Date     04/01/2017

When I view the same field via Chrome (I have not tried other web browsers) I get a number, something like:

     Start Date     42740

As I am just testing out something the load script is fairly basic, with the data relating to this being:

INPUTFIELD [Start Date];

INPUTFIELD [Maturity Date];


LOAD Text([Trade Reference]) AS [Trade Reference],




  DATE([Start Date]) AS [Start Date],

  DATE([Maturity Date]) AS [Maturity Date],

  [Volume USD],

  [Mark Up USD];


  Trade Reference, Product, Book, Client, Start Date, Maturity Date, Volume USD, Mark Up USD
