I have a problem with a date formatted like dd.MM.YYYY sometimes the is recognized as dd,MM,YYYY

I saw two solutions :

  • in advanced post search detect comma and then replace commas with dots, I think I find comma with if( not IsNull and Value.Find(",")) but can I replace comma with dots ?

  • I created 3 field day, month and year so I have all date parts, hoping to concatenate those 3 fields in a text block, through Expression, so I tried

    SearchElements.Header.References.Day.Value + "." + SearchElements.Header.References.Month.Value + "." + SearchElements.Header.References.Year.Value

but obviously it's not the way Expressions work since I have "Error: Error in position 0: Unexpected expression type"

(I use a text field to get the date and really need a date formatted with the pattern dd.MM.YYYY)

Thank for your help...

I wasn't searching in the right place :

the character replacement is possible in the document definition's editor, in the fields properties it's possible to set automatic correction...and character replacement is available there.
