You can choose any variety of date format to insert into your document templates, depending on your preferences.
If you would like to change the date format of a field in your document, you would highlight the merge field, and then click on Field Formatting in the Word Edit box.
Once you have clicked on “Apply” in the Word Edit box your document template will have the addition on the merge field, and when you come to produce your document, the appropriate format you have chosen will then be applied.
There is a helpsheet (no.SQL206) which covers this. Please click on the following link to view or download helpsheet – SQL206.net Date formats in templates.doc
