A date value.

When you import a date to a field using this storage type, the date in the source file may contain special characters such as forward slashes (/). The Import Utility will add the date to a date field regardless of whether the special characters appear in the source file; however, the imported date will appear in the application you are using with the date format that you've set in your operating system's control panel settings.
