Suggestion

Postby parishdm@att.net » Fri Jan 13, 2017 7:15 pm

I'd like to see a text type like Excel's PROPER function, wherein the first letter of each word is converted to UPPER CASE and all others are in lower case. Book titles, movie titles, etc. follow this format.

Also, I'd really [/b]like to have an option to display my dates in ISO format-- YYYY-MM-DD. At the very minimum, an option to display a four digit year, because of the previous decade's YY format easily confused with MM or DD. :-( Exchanging data with other countries is a real pain when Canadians use DD-MM-YYYY and Americans use MM-DD-YYYY and the ISO world uses YYYY-MM-DD.

Thanks,
Dale

Hi,

Thanks for the great suggestions! The date one is a bit tricky as we're using the system date functions on each platform so the OS actually does the formatting, but perhaps we can someday add a way to force a specific date setting on a specific date field!
