Question
Hi Scott

Is there any way in form view to set the format of a field as a day of the week?   As in, if 2014/7/24 is the date, I'd like a field to display Thursday

thanks in anticipation
Pete

Answer
Yes setting the format to "ddd" will display the 3 character day abbreviation (i.e. Sun). Setting it to "dddd" will display the full name of the day.

Hope this helps,
Scott<>
