    Posted: 11 Apr 2022 at 7:13pm
I have a parameter of type String having text of date format dd-mm-yyyy and in formula field I am trying to change the format to dd-MMM-yyyy using formula :
ToText(cDate({Datefield}),"dd-MMM-yyyy") as I want the result in string type only.

The formula is working fine for date like "21-03-2022" which is converted to "21-Mar-2022" but date like "10-07-2022" is converted to "07-Oct-2022". The date and month is getting swapped when date is between 1-12.Dont know what goes wrong. Is there any solution to fix it ?

Thankyou

Sounds like a country setting. You might be better using the Day, Month, Year functions and building your own date string.
