The date formats set up under Accessories > Date Formats are the system-wide prototypes that may be selected by the users as input and display formats. Regardless of which formats are selected by users, the database tables record the date internally in the YYYYMMDD format. However, since the year component of date formats can be entered as YY, care must be taken to set the Year 2000 option under Preferences... where applicable (e.g. Run-time > General Data Entry).
Once established, users may select their date preferences for input style and/or display option from any place in STEP FORWARD, where applicable.
