25-03-2021

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

Or you can simplify the formula slightly:

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