Customizing the display format of dates and times in a ClearQuest query result set

Technote (FAQ)


Question

How do I customize the display format of dates and times in a ClearQuest query result set?

Answer

Use the User Preferences dialog in the ClearQuest Web client to control the format of dates and times that display in a query result set (on-screen, printed, and exported) and in history and reference list controls on a record form.


On the Result Set tab of the User Preferences dialog, set Result set date format to Long Date, Medium Date, or Short Date:

  • Long Date
    Month DD, YYYY HH:MM:SS AM/PM time zone offset
    June 15, 2000 12:00:00 AM GMT+08:00

    Note
    : The time zone offset corresponds to the time zone of the current user.

  • Medium Date
    Mon DD, YYYY HH:MM:SS
    Jun 15, 2000 12:00:00 AM

  • Short Date
    MM/DD/YY HH:MM AM/PM
    06/15/00 12:00 AM

The long date format is used by default if you do not select a date format.
