How can I set the date’s format in Pro/ENGINEER Drawing when I’m using the ‘&todays_date’ system parameter in my drawing template?

proe date format

A config.pro option ‘todays_date_note_format’ is used to control the initial format of the date in a drawing. The default value for ‘todays_date_note_format’ is %dd-%Mmm-%yy which will display the date as 27-Oct-06 for example.

This value is basically just a string consisting of three portions: date, month, year and you are allowed to define it in any order. The table below shows the different values of ‘todays_date_note_format’ and the date display.

Value for ‘todays_date_note_format’ Date Display
%dd-%Mmm-%yy 27-Oct-06
%dd/%mm/%yy 27/10/06
%dd.%mm.%yyyy 27.10.2006
%dd %Mmm %yyyy 27 Oct 2006
%dd-%Mmm-%yy 27-Oct-06
%Mmm %dd, %yyyy Oct 27, 2006
