I assume that you get this from Insert/Custom/Current Date???

You need to change the # in the script to match the format you want...

According to the Adobe help files...(search DateFmt)

The following expressions are examples of using the DateFmt function:

DateFmt(1) returns - M/D/YY (if en_US locale is set)

DateFmt(2, "fr_CA") returns - YY-MM-DD

DateFmt(3, "de_DE") returns - D. MMMM YYYY

DateFmt(4, "fr_FR") returns - EEEE D' MMMM YYYY

I don't know if you can customize it further or not...

Thanks Jenn.

Although I don't do scripting I was able to figure it out.

Works fine.

Please let me know how you got it to work.

It's been driving me crazy - I've been going through the 'help' and tried it all - but I need the format to be MM/DD/YY - 01/09/09 - it needs to have the zeros.
