Static values



Stores and displays a date. The date is entered in MMDDYYYY form and is displayed according to the system settings, in short form. The year values can range from 1800 to 9999.

The runtime engine automatically checks each date value to ascertain whether its values are within the acceptable ranges of a date value. If the date is not valid, a message is displayed.

An uninitialized date field (one that hasn’t been set to a value) will have the value 00000000. This is an acceptable date value.
