While using GIFTS 6.4, when a Date Format other than default Short Date is set in the Administrator module, the date format is not being reflected in Ad Hoc reports. An incorrect Date Format displays in Print Preview and printed reports.
To set Date Format for Reports, follow the steps below:
1. Open the Administrator module 2. Setup menu > Reporting > Global Formatting > Page Setup tab. 3. The following format options are available under the Date Format dropdown: Short Date 01/11/2012 Long Date Wednesday, January 11, 2012 Month Year January 2012 Month Day, Year January 11, 2012 Day Month Year 11 January 2012 4. When this option is modified in the Administrator module, the new format may not be reflected in Ad Hoc reports in GIFTS 6.4.
To correct the Date Format on the Ad Hoc Reports, follow the steps below: 1. After you have generated your Ad Hoc report, go to the Page Setup tab 2. Change the Date Format to any other option and then back to the desired option. 3. Click the Design tab to see the format change. 4. Click Print or Print Preview; the Ad Hoc report should now show the corrected date format.
NOTE: This procedure may need to be done each time you create a new Ad Hoc report to be printed.
