example 1: [question(“value”), id=”29″,format=”Y-m-d”]
example 2: [system(“date”),format=”Y-m-d”]
I can’t figure out the syntax to make example 1 work. Example 2 works without a problem!
I’m just passing it to another application which expects a text string which looks like YYYY-MM-DD.
If I were facing a similar problem in Excel, I’d start doing things like (left, 4 characters), (right, 2 characters) etc. and then piece it back together.
Is that more or less hassle than custom scripting – as I’m not at all familiar with scripting?
Fixed it – here’s the issue: http://screencast.com/t/42CDYy3U8
Yes, I can verify that there are no loose spaces, but I still get bad syntax. I can’t adjust the date formatting, as I need it to appear in a UK format on the front end, but a different format elsewhere (with dashes too, not slashes)
I tried it again on my end. Make sure that there are no blank space behind the last line of code – there should be a return immediately after each semi-colon.
If custom-scripting is not going to work for you could you adjust the date validation method you are using – https://help.surveygizmo.com/help/article/link/date#selecting-your-date-format
