Format of date display  (See more user questions)


Good to hear from you.

Most customers just need the date to be human-readable. The more it looks
like a timestamp, the less readable it is. It should display fine in Excel
in a "general" or "text" formatted cell. If your needs are more demanding,
you might need to look beyond a twenty-buck form script.

That said, you can pretty much make the date output any way you like it.
Have a look at this page on the PHP manual:

Change date("M dS Y") accordingly.

Version 3.3 uses a similar thing to that above. Just download it if you
want to try it:

Any questions, just let me know.

Best wishes.
