An Australian QuickBase customer asked today, "How can we change the 01-20-2010 (U.S. date format) to the Euro 20-01-2010 format?". They want their reports to display in a format that is customary for their country and locale. Well you can if you add a formula text field and reformat the date.
There is also a really good QuickBase Knowledgebase article you can reference.
By the way we hold 10 live webinars each week. Many explore customization ideas like this one.
