Dates are displayed in the standard format:
Dates can be entered using this format. Leading zero, dashes, 3-character month in caps, and 4-digit year must all be used. Since this is rather cumbersome, there are some shortcuts that save time and keystrokes.
2. If you wish to enter a day of a different month of this year, you may enter the numbers of the month and day in the format of MMDD. For example, if you enter 0801, the system will return 01-AUG-2005. You can enter any date in any month of the current year the same way. For example, entering 0915, TAB, will return 15-SEP-2005.
3. To enter a date in a different year, you can use the display format (see above). Or, you can use the format of MMDDYY, such as 063005, or the format of MMDDYYYY, such as 06302005, and the system will return 30-JUN-2005.
