that won't work. The short english date would be what I am after (along with the short english dateFormat for that matter) Sorry for the typo in my previous post...
. The dubious thing is, I have seen %#m and %#d before reported from the engine, even though that is not documented either. %#y I never saw though.
From the dict:
Code: Select all
The dateFormat function returns a string. Comments: The dateFormat function returns a string containing one or more formatting incantations, each of which describes a part of the requested date format. The possible incantations are as follows: %a Abbreviated weekday name: the abbreviated day of the week, as reported by the weekdayNames function %A Full weekday name: the full day of the week, as reported by the weekdayNames function %b Abbreviated month name: the abbreviated month name, as reported by the monthNames function %B Full month name: the full month name, as reported by the monthNames function %d Day of the month: the day of the month as a number %m Month number: the number of the month %y Two-digit year: the year as a two-digit number %Y Four-digit year: This incantation indicates the year as a four-digit number (including the century) %w Day of the week: A number between 1 and 7
All the best,
