    Column date in Serials has the wrong format

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 20

    In Serials check in, the arrival date in the upper pane column has the format of ddmmyyyy. In the arrival form, the date is correct mmddyyyy. I have the correct settings in the GUI and I looked at pc_tab_col.eng where there is no switch for the column setting that I can see. I also looked in tab100, just in case.

    The cause of this is the aleph_date_time variable in aleph_start. It's set to 2, which is configured to be European format. Change this to 1, which is configured for US style date display.
