    I have tried to install the Add Date MM/DD Period as Delimiter patch a few times, but when it installs, the date still shows as "MM/DD" instead of "MM.DD".

    Has anyone been able to get this patch to work successfully?

    Are the developers of this patch out there? Any plans for a fix - or can it even be fixed?

    Thanks.

    Hi JayKC,

    you interpreted the title wrong. The patch will NOT change you delimiter it only supports the period as delimiter.
    The original only checked for a"/" to remove the year value. But we in Germany use a period. As a result the orinal patch was not working.
    So I made this changed version that checks for "." and "/" when it removed the year from the date string.
    The day and month formatting is not changed. It is displayed as the Pre formats it for the selected country.

    HaPe
    p.s. I'm the developer of that pach.

    Thanks for the clarification. Maybe somebody could create a patch like this for U.S. users?

    HaPe,
    I too misinterpreted this patch. You might want to update the description of the patch to mention that is does not use the "MM.DD" format. I am a US user and wanted "MM.DD" as the format and thought this patch would do that. I understand now what it does.

    Admittedly, I was confused by the name also.

    Just in case anyone would like this, here's a modification of the original MM/DD patch which switches the "/" with ".".
