Store only date, month and year instead of timestamp

Recommended Posts


I need to store date when record was submitted. I know that I can stamp record, using a "time stamp" hidden field, but I need to store only date, month and year. I don't need time, because I'm not able to use this field in grouping data on Chart report.

Thanks for help!

Hi Mylene,

Try using the following script:

 Stamp = new Date();
 var v_TimeStamp;
 v_TimeStamp=('' + (Stamp.getMonth() + 1) +"/"+Stamp.getDate()+ "/"+Stamp.getFullYear());


Please add your field name instead of Date_field. 

Hope it helps.

Hello, I pull up the date from the Timestamp by creating a formula field on a table level and then inserting the following formula:

CONVERT(varchar(10), [@field:Timestamp], 101)

101 is a date format I commonly use. Sometimes, I use 110 if I want a dash on it instead of slash.

Hi - I would like to add on this post. In case, you would like to get the month using DATEPART() and add leading zero, you may use these formulas:

RIGHT('0' + CAST(DATEPART(month, [@field:DATE]) AS VARCHAR(10)), 2)




January = 1 to 01
February = 2 to 02

Since the DATEPART() function returns an integer, leading zero's will always disappear and need to be manually added like so.
