Hi,
I could set my format string in the property 'Format' like dd.MM.yyyy and get the correct German date format.

Apjchandresh, you're misunderstanding what they're asking for. The format is already MMDDYYYY. They're trying to reverse the day & the month so Day is listed first.

has anyone made a 'cheat sheet' for formatting in SSRS? It would be very helpful as I find myself constantly googling date/time formats...

Something like: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/73ctwf33.aspx

=Format(Fields!startdate.Value, "dd/mm/yy")

But refer to url for exact formatting

Cheers,
Ryan

Ryan,
Would not work,
cause "mm" stands for minutes, not Months

if you have the need for the day first :
go to the filed expression
type : =format(fields!fieldname.value,"dd/MM/yyyy") , gives 19/11/2009
=format(fields!fieldname.value,"MM/dd/YYYY"), gives 11/19/2009
=format(fields!fieldname.value,"yyyy/dd/MM"), gives 2009/19/11
you can also change the / by - or : of whatever separator you want to use

Hopes this helps you a bit.
Wkr,
Eddy

Use =FormatDateTime(Data Field Name,2) or =Format(Data Field Name,"mm/DD/yyyy").

Use =FormatDateTime(Data Field Name,2) or =Format(Data Field Name,"mm/DD/yyyy").


No, impossible, cause lowercase 'mm' will give you minutes in stead of months
its just the mm that would have to be in uppercase and the dd have to be in lowercase

=format(datetimefield.value,"MM/dd/yyyy") = 11/20/2010
or in european format
=format(datetimefield.value,"dd/MM/yyyy") = 20/11/2010

Eddy
