## Convert System Date to mmddyyyy format

Level 3

Hello,

I am trying to convert system date to in this format: mmddyyyy

So for today which is March 25th, 2021, it should show as 03252021

I am using the following formula:

Month(GetDate())+'/'+Day(GetDate())+'/'+Year(GetDate())

It worked but the results are coming up in format "3/245/2021". Is there a way, I can get the 2 digits for the month without having the "/". For instance. for today, the output should be: 0325202

Any ideas?

Thanks!

Iif(Month(GetDate())>9, ToString(Month(GetDate())), '0'+ToString(Month(GetDate())))+Iif(Day(GetDate())>9, ToString(Day(GetDate())), '0'+ToString(Day(GetDate())))+ToString(Year(GetDate()))

Also make sure to post in ACS forum instead of ACC.

Thanks,

David

Hope this will work.

var a = formatDate(new Date(), "%2M%2D%4Y");

You can refer to the following for more details.

Iif(Month(GetDate())>9, ToString(Month(GetDate())), '0'+ToString(Month(GetDate())))+Iif(Day(GetDate())>9, ToString(Day(GetDate())), '0'+ToString(Day(GetDate())))+ToString(Year(GetDate()))

Or you can simplify the formula slightly:

Right('0'+ToString(Month(GetDate())), 2) + Right('0'+ToString(Day(GetDate())),2) + ToString(Year(GetDate()))

Thanks David. That works for GetDate() but what happens if you apply the formula to a field in which the date is only present some of the time? When the date is not present the value output into the field is "00". Is there anyway to overcome this. I have tried various functions, e.g.IsEmptyString(datefield) - with and without ToString(datefield) - Iif(datefield IS NULL, Iif(Length (datefield) = 0 , etc. etc,. and nothing gets parsed.
