How To: Use short date format in the results filename
Document ID: DQ247 Relevant to following products: WorkOut 2.0 Manta Document description: How To: Use short date format in the results filename
The <CurrentDate> macro can be used to name a results filename based on the current date. The <CurrentDate> macro will always expand to the long date. The format of the long date is defined in the Windows Control Panel.
If required you can make changes to your Windows setting, though this will affect all applications which use the long date.
In Windows XP: go to Control Panel, select Regional and Language Options. Select your format and press Customize.. Under the Date tab find the Long date format section and you can edit the date format, for example dd MM yy. Press Apply to see the Long date sample.
If you prefer not to make changes to Windows long date settings, the macros <CurrentDateLong> <CurrentDateShort> are available in builds 310 and later.
