Convert Date

Recommended Posts



I have a csv file that I want to import into FM16.  The csv file has the date format as YYYY-DD-MM (2019-30-12).  I want FM16 to convert the format to MM/DD/YYYY (12/30/2019).  is that possible?

I think I found this posted before from FM super genius @comment  I apologize if I am crediting the wrong person.  Can’t test on iPad.

Let ( [ 
ydm = Substitute ( text ; "-" ; ¶ ) ;
year = GetValue ( ydm ; 1 ) ;
day = GetValue ( ydm  ; 2 ) ;
month = GetValue ( ydm  ; 3 ) 
] ; 
Date ( month ; day ; year )
