Yes, i know, but how does the removal of "date#([date] , 'YYYY/MM/DD' )": from alt solves the problem.
this is is just one of the format which was present in the earlier version of this file but not now in this file.
In future sone text in the format YYYY/MM/DD can appear again so i will have to use this which i believe will work then.
But the alt function is not concerned if the format is NOT present in the file, it is concerned IF IT IS present then it converts to the desired default/set format else if none of the mentioned format is present then it will return date(0) i.e. 30/12/1899.
Again, why do we have to remove "date#([date] , 'YYYY/MM/DD' )" from the alt to make it work ?
