Date fields

Dates can be shown in the date field in three different ways:

The date format is defined in the PMINIT__.DAT file. If the panel field is not long enough to contain the entire date, the numbers are truncated beginning with the year. In the ISO format, the date has a field length of 6 characters. In this format the date January 27, 1999 would be displayed as 990127.

The date field can also have a separator character such as [/] between the year and month, and between the month and day. When a separator character is used, January 27, 1999 would be shown as 99/01/27. To include a separator character in your time format, you must include it in the panel definition.
