Issue with Date format

Hi All,

I am trying to convert the Date from 'DD/MM/YYYY' to 'DD MMM YYYY'.

My date here  is 9/1/2017 (DD/MM/YYYY), when I try to convert to 'DD MMM YYYY', I get '01 Sep 2017' instead of '09 Jan 2017'. If I have 31/1/2-017 I don't see any date when I use 'Monthname' function.

Did anyone come across this kind of scenario?

Thanks in advance!

Cheers,

Varun

Hi,

Change the Default Date format as below

SET DateFormat='D/M/YYYY'; 

LET vDate = Date('9/1/2017','DD MMM YYYY');

Hi,

Try below

=Date(Date#(Datefield, D/MM/YYYY'),'DD/MMM/YYYY')  as newdate

Not applicable

Hi Varun,

Whenever you need to change date from one format to another than better use Date# function.

=Date(Date#('9/1/2017','D/MM/YYYY'),'DD/MMM/YYYY')
