Confusing Date range formate in QM: Edit Data

Postby StefanoSF » 13 Jan 2013

In QM/ Edit data for symbol, the data range window displays Date Ranges as MM/DD/YYYY while the Data window below it displays dates as DD/MM/YYY. And it become even more confusing, when you click the Data date field, the date format switches to MM/DD/YYYY.

This seems like a simple quick fix and would save some brain cpu.

Hello StefanoSF,

The format of Data Range setting depends on your regional settings in Windows Control Panel. The data is always written with the same format of date. I'll check with our engineers if there is anything can be done in this case and let you know.

On a related note, I notice that the date displayed in the "Expert Commentary" window is set as DD/MM/YYYY, although my Windows settings are for MM/DD/YYYY.

Unfortunately you cannot affect the date format of the recorded data in base, but in next version of MultiCharts your Windows regional settings will affect Expert Commentary.
