Date Format $DT$ variable
Feb 19th, 2010 at 1:37pm
I have moved to version 4.6.1 and at the same time installed WD on a virtual PC.
The date on the PC is UK format dd/mm/yyyy but the email variable $DT$ displays as mm/dd/yyyy.
The date displays in UK format with Word etc.
I'm not sure if it's a WD problem or the Virtual PC.
Has anyone else noticed this?

$DT$ uses the date-format as set by the country settings on the window "View -> Options...". This setting defaults to united states (which uses mm/dd).

You probably want to set it to "English / United Kingdom (2057)".


PS, this question comes up often, I guess it is a better idea for us to introduce $DD$, $MM$, $YY$ and $YYYY$ variables in the next release.
