Did you give yesterday’s Date Picker feature for MS Word 2007 a try?
I know that I really love the idea… especially for templates.
Anyway, as I was working with the Date Picker I noticed, as I’m sure so did you, that the date is formatted in a way that I would rarely use…
This leads me to wonder how I can change that.
So, as expected, I went searching for an answer.
And… after many failed attempts with right-clicks and whatnot I finally took a good look at the Controls section of the Developer tab of the Ribbon.
There’s a Properties button that becomes active when I have the Date Picker selected.
Clicking the Properties button gave me just what I was looking to find… Imagine that?
As you can see in the center area you do have a choice as to how the date is formatted.
Pick one and click OK.
Yeah! I mean I thought that this little gem had a lot of potential to begin with but now I find it even more useful that I did before.
