Specifying date time format in Finder

How can I specify the date-time format in Finder for the "date-modified" and "date-created" columns in list view?
About three years ago, I got a command line instruction to set these formats and I kept it at mm/dd/yy
Then a couple days ago, I changed the date format in iStat menus and the date-time formats started acting weird. I want the dates to be like "07/08/05" (mm/dd/yy) and then the formats started changing to "November 07, 2008" (month/dd/yyyy). This change seemed to take effect any time I open the view options for a folder. Now I discovered that the date format change depending on the column width according to the format specified in system preferences, international, formats.
Narrow column, short date format; a little wider to long format, with ellipses if the column is not wide enough; then full format.
Does anyone know the command line to set the format to keep it to the one I want?

this doesn't seem to be it. however I now like the way Finder does display dates -- format gets more compact as the width of the column decreases; although there still is some excess space left on the left -- perhaps for AM & PM which I don't use; I use a 24 hour time format instead.
Happy New Year

  • Wrong DATE-TIME FORMAT among REPORTS NOTIFICATION EMAILs

    Dear all,
    I create a report request with url
    https://ocixxxx2.oci.xxcl.net/reports/rwservlet?>destype=printer&desformat=PDF&server=rep_xxxxx2_orahome&userid=ixxxxxx/[email protected]&notifysuccess=IASL&notifyfailure=IASL&report=R1000R13.rdf&jobname=R1000R13&desname=HPLaserJet4150PCL6
    Email notification was generated with wrong date format .
    It's expected to be in UK English but it shows encoded text , may be random. I route it to another email servers such that find the date time is in chinese characters . That caused problem on original email server in which was not supported
    Could any expert please advice ?
    Warmly

    It's indeed an expected behavior.
    When a Reports Server starts on a Windows machine, it likely detect the Windows Regional Settings in order to use it when needed later. This let the Reports Server communicate in the same format/way the Server machine uses. For example, if the System / Application Server administrator prefers to use the Windows (on which the Application Server is installed) with Chinese Regional Options, it is normal that the Reports Server send the Notification Email with a "Date/Time" Format matches the Windows.
    Thence, you like to get English/Western Date and Time format in the Reports Server Notification Email, it is required to change the Windows Regional Settings from Chinese to English and restart the Reports Server and restart the corresponding compoent. This will let the Reports Server detect the change and will send the Notification Email(s) then with English/Western Date and Time formats.
    If English/Western Date and Time format in the Reports Server Notification Email but still have the Windows Regional Settings set to Chinese, you can implement it
    that :-
    1. Change the Windows Regional Settings from Chinese to English.
    2. Restart the Reports Server and restart others.
    3. Change the Windows Regional Settings back from English to Chinese. .
    With these 3 steps, the Reports Server will keep sending the Notification Emails with English/Western Date and Time format, and maintain original settings.

  • ConsoleOne lacking Date/Time-Format-Tab for Client-Setting

    I remember from GW6 the Client-Setting-Tab in ConsoleOne for Date-/Time-Format (for local german format)
    There is a tab with these settings in the GW8-Client, but I cannot find this specific setting in ConsoleOne.
    Any ideas?
    Sincerely
    Karl

    The availability in ConsoleOne with GW6.0 is confirmed. Now, since it seems to be gone with GW8.0, how would someone deal with the need of a central adjustment of this setting? At time I am running through the firm with setting this at the users workplace in the GW8.0-Client under Tools/Options/Calendar/Date-Time with hitting the button "Set to System" (or something like that - I have it in German).
    Sincerely

  • Difference between LV 6.1 and LV 7.0 - Date\Time Format

    I found different behviour of numeric controls in Date/Time format, or
    in "Seconds to Date\Time String" function in LV6.1 and LV7.0
    In LV 6.1:
    Absolute time in seconds is formated in control with date/time format,
    output depends on local time format on computer, where this VI runs.
    So if I start LabView on machine with specific time zone, and for
    example DST on, the output was changed by these settings. ANY number
    of second is handled by this settings.
    In LV 7.0:
    Output still depends on specific time zone, but the use of the DST
    on/off depends on absolute time value. So if the number represents
    absolute time which fits period when DST was off, the output is
    wihtout DST, even if the DST is on when this vi runs.
    The solution in LV 7.0 is much more better than in LV 6.1, but ...
    If data are measured and stored (store of absoulte time DBL) in one
    time zone, and if they are processed in different time zone (for
    exapmle where DST change is in different time), the data
    representation is wrong.
    In LV 6.1 it was not correct too, but anyway there was a way how to
    solve this problem:
    I stored absolute time DBL and GMT delta for every time stamp. When I
    process this stored data on different computer with different time
    zone, I recalculate time stamps in this way:
    absolute time + stored GMT delta - GMT delta of computer where data
    are presented.
    So in final I have correct time does not matter on time zone or any
    other settings which are on computer where are data presented.
    But on LV 7.0, the GMT delta is not constant for every data and this
    algorithm is useless. I can simply show correct time when data are
    from same time zone without any calculation, but it is almost
    imposible to correct show data
    from different time zone.
    My question is:
    Is there any "ini file item", which can tell LabView 7.0 to use time
    representation style as in LV 6.1 ?
    Thank you and best regards
    Jiri Hula

    Thanks for the well written question.
    Unfortunately, there is no ini token or any way of specifying LabVIEW use the LV 6.1 style.
    I am attaching a LabVIEW 7.0 VI that calculates the UTC Offset for a given time value (I don't think the same code would work correctly in LabVIEW 6.1). The VI comments are:
    The attached VI will take Daylight Saving and Time zone into account to compute the offset in seconds from UTC Time to the Local time (as specified by the computer). Note: This VI can aid in converting from Local Time to UTC time, but not in converting from one Timezone to another.
    I hope it helps. Basically, your data is in UTC (absolute time) as it has always been, but LabVIEW 7.0 changed the way it displays the UTC data (trying to be more correct). If you wish to display it the way it was in LabVIEW 6.1, things are going to get a little tricky. LabVIEW 6.1 displayed the same DBL absolute time differently depending on if the current computer time was in DST or not. To get this behavior in LabVIEW 7.0, the equation:
    absolute time + stored GMT delta - GMT delta of computer where data are presented
    is still correct, but for LabVIEW 7.0 the GMT deltas now vary depending on whether the absolute time is in DST or not. It may be possible to convert the GMT offset you have saved from LabVIEW 6.1 into a set or pair of UTC Offsets. This would require a knowledge of what the DST state was for each of the data points in question.
    The DST state or GMT/UTC offset that the computer currently is using may be obtained from the attached VI.
    The absolute time is stored in GMT/UTC so that in different time zones it will still equate to the same time, even though it will be displayed differently. Another data format (such as storing the Hour, Minute, Second, Day, Month, Year; or storing the date as a string) might be more appropriate if the time should be displayed as the same local time regardless of the time zone.
    I hope this helps. Please respond if you have any comments or questions.

  • Changing date/time format

    Hi there,
    I live in the United States but prefer my dates to be in the dd/mm/yy format as opposed to the US mm/dd/yy format. I also like 24-hour time rather than AM/PM. I System Preferences>Language & Text>Region, I found the tool to modify my preferred date/time formats. However, I notice that the format of the date in my menu bar does not change (it still reads Sep 25 when it should read 26 Sep). All other dates/times appear to function correctly. I briefly switched the Region of the computer to the United Kingdom but quickly switched it back because of how autocorrect handled words like "color."
    Ideas?

    That did the trick - sometimes the easiest thing to do is hard to see. Seems I have been working too long on a Windows machine (unfortunately, I have to do so at work)...
    Thanks for the quick help!

  • Date time formatting issues!!!!

    guys,
    I am trying to format date and time in the same variable.
    heres my code...
    <cfset dtimes = LSDateFormat(now(),'YYYY-MM-DD
    h:mm:ss')>
    the problem is, that it gives me the year month and day
    correctly.... the hour correctly, but where the minute is supposed
    to go, it gives me the month again (which makes sense cuz obviously
    its the same characters)... and then seconds are ok too. how do i
    fix it so it gives me the correct minutes? Thanks in advance!!!!
    JE

    A limitation of CF functions there is not a single date &
    time format
    function you have to combine the two.
    <cfset dtimes = LSDateFormat(now(),'YYYY-MM-DD') & ' '
    LSTimeFormat(now(),'h:mm:ss')>

    Hi Adek,
    Here is a DataPlugin which loads your data file into DIAdem 10.2.  There are a number of advantages to using a DataPlugin over the ASCII Import Wizard, so long as your data files follow a similar data file structure.  To register the DataPlugin, just detach the ZIP file, unzip the URI file within, then double-click on the URI file in Windows Explorer.  After that, you will be able to load your TXT data files by dragging&dropping them directly from the NAVIGATOR tree view or Search Results into the Data Portal on the right hand side of DIAdem.  DataPlugins also support selective loading, register loading, reduced loading, and DataFinder indexing, so all of these immediately become available to you with your TXT files.  Note also that header lines 2-4 are now declared as both File and Group properties.
    Ask if you have questions using the DataPlugin,

    However, when I look at the execution plan, I see that the last predicate (to_number(answer) > 0) has been executed the first. Henceforth, it checks many rows first. Normally, 75 rows belong to 31/12/2012 as you see from the following. Can I specify the execution order?According to the execution plan, it will do a full scan of surveys using the predicate on insertdate to build the (presumably in-memory) hash table (hash based on survey_id) to do the joins (Step 2). Then, it does a full scan of the answers table using the question_uid and answer predicates (Step 3). For each row it finds that matches those predicate, it will prpobe the hash table created in step 2 using the hashed value of survey_seq_id. So, it is doing the insertdate predicate first.

    No, it is an implicit type conversion. Your code says answer > 0, since the answer column is a varchar2 column, Oracle implicitly converts the answer column to a number to compare against the number on the right side of the comparison. Note that if something like 'A' ever becomes a valid answer, then this query will fail with ORA-01722: invalid number.

    Of course you can use inequality predicates on a varcahr column. Is the string A greater than the string B?

    Hi, and welcome to the forums.
    Do you mean in the TM Interface +(Enter Time Machine)?+
    If so, try turning TM off, selecting the "none" drive, quitting System Preferences, then going back and re-selecting the drive.
    If that doesn't work, try a "full reset:"
    Turn TM Off, de-select the drive, note any exclusions in Options, quit System Preferences.
    Delete the file /Library/Preferences/com.apple.TimeMachine.plist (in your top-level Library folder, not your home folder).
    Re-select your drive (and re-enter any exclusions).
    Do a +Back Up Now+ or wait for the next scheduled backup.
