Changing the Long Date in Management Reporter 2012
Posted by Greg Horner
Management Reporter 2012 has made financial reporting much easier, with its flexible mapping features and new browser report viewer. However, there is one thing every customer has asked me:
“Why does the header show the long date of “For the One Month Ending Friday, January 31, 2014?”
Many of our customers want to shorten this date and remove the weekday (in this case, “Friday”) and just display “For the One Month Ending, January 31, 2014”.
If you’ve looked in the Header setup window, you probably have seen the “short date” and “long date” options, but that’s it. If you select the “short date” option, it simply displays “01/31/2014.”
Here are some simple steps to help you change the display settings for Long Date in Management Reporter:
– Right-click on the time/date on your desktop.
– Select “Change date and time settings…”
Click on “Change date and time …”
Then select “Change calendar settings”
Here you can change the “Long date” setting to: “MMMM dd, yyyy” (or other combinations) and press > OK.
Now the “Long date” in Management Reporter will return only the month, date, and year and not the day of the week. It’s as simple as that!
