I'm trying to get my time fields from requiring the user to input military times just to get the AM/PM thing right. If I enter 0930, I get 09:30:00AM. That makes sense and I could live with the "09" thing. But the afternoon times require something like "1330" to get 01:30:00PM. I've experimented with different patterns and read the help files for acceptable patterns, but nothing seems to work. I read that a FormCalc may be necessary, but that would be new territory for me. Surely there's got to be a way to set the Display Pattern (I'm not worrying about validation pattern) to reflect a non-military pattern (either on display or entry).
