Company Date and Numeric Format

To open the Company Date and Numeric Format setting on a desktop computer, click the [Settings] button in the Master Control panel. You can also use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl-S (Windows) or ⌘-S (Macintosh).

Use the scroll key to highlight 'Company Date and Numeric Format' and then press the Enter key. The following window opens:

Internally, all dates are stored with four-digit years (e.g. "2000"). If you switch on the Century check box, HansaWorld SmartApps will display the century digits in all dates. However, you do not have to type the extra two century digits, they will be added automatically by HansaWorld SmartApps. If you enter "100407" in a date field, Hansa will change it to "10-04-2007", assuming "-" is the Date Separator.

In single-user systems, whenever you make a change in this setting, its effect will be immediate and universal.

In multi-user systems, you can change the Company Date and Numeric Format setting from a client machine, but the changes may not take effect throughout the system until the master has been restarted.
