How to Add New Short Date for Input Mask

P: 1
In the table, we need dates to read "07-07-2012" - with "0" showing up in both the month and day. I am not a programmer so I need specific details. THANKS.

Look at your table in design mode. Find the format property and enter:
mm-dd-yyyy
OR
dd-mm-yyyy
as appropriate to your location.

Personally I always prefer the ISO standard of:
yyyy-mm-dd

I believe forms created AFTER the changes to the table will automatically inherit the format property (which can then manually be changed btw). If you have allready created your forms you will likely need to enter the form in design mode, select relevant textbox, and modify the format property.
