Days and Months

This page describes the Days and Months setting in the System module.

The Days and Months setting allows you to record the names of the days and months in various Languages. This will be useful if you have added the "Month in words" field to your Form Templates. You can use the "Month in words" field in many Form Templates when you need the name of a month to be printed in a form in the relevant Language (e.g. in the Language of a Customer or Supplier).

To work with this setting, first ensure you are in the System module. Then, if you are using Windows or macOS, click the [Settings] button in the Navigation Centre and then double-click 'Days and Months' in the 'Settings' list. If you are using iOS or Android, select 'Settings' from the Tools menu (with 'wrench' icon) and tap 'Days and Months' in the 'Settings' list. The 'Days and Months: Browse' window will open. This contains a list of the records already entered to this setting.

Double-click (Windows/macOS) or tap (iOS/Android) on a line to open the edit window, or add a new record by selecting 'New' from the Create menu (Windows/macOS) or the + menu (iOS/Android). When the record is complete, click the [Save] button (Windows/macOS) or tap √ (iOS/Android) to save it, or use the close box (Windows/macOS) or < (iOS/Android) to close it without saving changes.

Enter separate records in this setting for each Language. In each record, specify the Language using 'Paste Special' and then enter the names of the days and months as appropriate.
