NiceLabel Designer - Date in wrong Century

Post by Csar1985 » Wed Jan 15, 2020 11:20 am

Dear,

We have a label where we print the date through 'yyMMdd' format.
The problem we encounter here is when the input value is '300101' that the label prints '01/01/1930'

Is there anyway to overcome this problem?

Thanks in advance!

Nico

What version of NiceLabel are you currently using? Are you using the printer clock to print the date or are you letting the computer control it?

Hi,

We are using Version 19.0.1 (Build 3817) - Info from Nicelabel Designer.

We're letting the computer control it. It's a due-date for a product.

We deliver it in yyMMdd, because that's the information we get from the ERP-System.

Thanks in advance!

I can reproduce the same in 2019.0.1.
However, it works "as expected" in 2019.2.
Both running on Windows 10.

I suggest scheduling some down time and upgrading your NiceLabel to 2019.2.
You can download the NiceLabel trial and install it on top of the existing version, keeping all data and licensing info.
