Question:

How Do You Change the Date Format, from MM/DD/YYYY to DD/MM/YYYY, on CA View Panels and Reports?

 

Answer:

The date format is specified in the first byte (hex location 00) of the SARDFMT load module. 

 

To change the default date format (MM/DD/YYYY) to format DD/MM/YYYY: 

 

 . Use the SMP USERMOD in the CVDEJCL member BRMSDFMT, to set the values in SARDFMT. 

 

 . Change the REP statement in the AMASPZAP input to the required values: 

 

++ZAP(SARDFMT). 

NAME SARDFMT SARDFMT 

VER 0000 0061,7A00 

REP 0000 0161,7A00 

$$

 

Note: 01 above (in 0161) indicates use of DD/MM/YYYY date format.
