My downloaded CSV has the date format as YYYY/MM/DD. I want it as MM/DD/YYYY. However, changing the Date Format on the Import Options screen does not seem to change anything, and I get a warning when I proceed with the import. What am I doing wrong?

(Please excuse my using both this the post and an email. I need help as quickly as possible!)

Hi Mike!

I'm posting the reply we sent to your email, so everyone gets the benefit :).

Quote:
The Date Format in the Import Options window is where you tell CheckBook the format that’s in the file you’re importing, so you’ll want to choose YYYY/MM/DD. The format that’s displayed in your Entries is according to the format your Mac is set to use, though you get to choose between the Mac's short (probably MM/DD/YYYY) or long date format in CheckBook’s preferences. I’d go ahead and set the Date Format in Import Options to YYYY/MM/DD now, then check out how things look in your Entries. The default will probably be just what you’re expecting - but if you need a hand from there, let us know!
