Im looking for an easy way to convert dates. I am slightly anal retentive so when i import data i want all my dates to match when i print something out. here is an example:

Covert all dates from:

1 oct 1907, 1 OCT 1970, 1 October 1970, Oct 1, 1970,

to

01 Oct 1970

is this even remotely possible?

Go to the FTM 2 Tool Item and select Preferences >dates and make your date format selection

I don't think that there is a date format convertor in FTM but Is suspect that if you searched Google there would be something out there to do the job?

Hi Scott.

You would need to change the date in the imported data as FTMM(2) doesn't support search and replace in date fields.
