Date Formats

The format of the dates and periods in the application (e.g. fiscal periods, pay periods, batch months, effective dates, etc.) is determined by the region setting of your workstation.

To view or change the region setting of your workstation, go to the Start menu on your Windows Task Bar, select Control Panel > Region and Language Options, and then open the Format tab on the Region and Language window. The Short Date field defines how dates/periods display in the system.

The date/period format used for reports is determined by the Report Date Format field in HQ Company Setup. This option allows you to define the date form in each company.

  • 1 – (mm/dd/yy)
  • 2 – (dd/mm/yy)
  • 3 – (yy/mm/dd)
Note: It is suggested that you select the format that matches the date format defined for your PC.
