Date Format

As a developer, you must keep in mind that date formats can vary by database and by country. Another thing to consider is whether you want to indicate the date alone or a timestamp. Be sure to check the documentation that comes with your database for information on date formats.

Help topics include sample code referring to the c_birthday variable. This is simply a placeholder; if you are working with the sample files, you will want to substitute database-specific code to specify the date.
