Working with Date/Time Format Strings

You can specify the formatting of dates using the placeholders shown below. You can use any separation character you like, as long as it does not conflict with the supported variable names.

A typical example would be “CCYY-MM-DD” for an ISO formatted date, or “MM/DD/YY” for an date, like it is used in the United States.
