Did you try with this "DD.MM.YYY" (upper case only) format as display pattern of the date field. Hope it is working.
If still ur facing same problem just send me the file or copy that date to new file and send.
thx for you help. I think I already tried that - but I will verify. But I am afraid, that this has to wait at least one week.
a healty new year for you and your relatives.

I did - with DD.MM.YYYY (four Y). But when I choose the date with the mouse from the calender the date shown is 2010/01/01 8-(((. I does not use the german format.
