    Angry Formating local date problem,

    Hi helpers,
    I need to have a specialized field for my voucher's local date which is totaly based on different calendar and formats with the system's. (English)
    So I created a feild in my table, as text data, and gave it a YYYY/MM/DD input mask in forms, but this field in many places like combo boxes, and reports controls is shown as a number, such as 31940. pls note that there is no similar calendar format in Windows system for my purpose.
    How can I avoid this, I mean I need this text (my local calendar date) to be shown as it is and entered. I dont need this feild for calculations, so text is appropriate.
    thanks in advance.

    I think like this:

    Go to your table (design view). set the Date field to Data Type "Date/Time" and set the input mask. Choose edit list in the input mask wizard box.

    Input mask: "9999/99/99"
    Mask Type: "Date-Time"

    Use the Sample data field to see if this is what you want.

    Should work.
