I am in the process of up grading from A4V6 to A5V5 and am unable to display the date in dd.month.yyyy on my invoice form from the system date dd.mm.yyyy. I might have just got myself bogged down but I can't find the right buttons to press. Any help appreciated.

Open the layout (form or report) in design mode. Right click the field object. Choose properties. Choose Format tab. click the down pointing triangle to drop down a list of altenative display format.

Additional options are available via the Date_format() function. check the docs for details.

Thanks Tom. I must not have double clicked fast enough on the field.
