How do you convert the date range from American to European date format ?

Your quarters are not quarters.

Second quarter is 4/1/2009 to 6/30/2009

Lee,

"Second quarter" is not an option. Read the notes in the function. However, "This quarter" or "Last quarter" or "Next quarter" work just fine. The first three hours this was posted, there was a typo, so recopy the code if necessary.

Shai,

I do not own a European version of FileMaker, so I can't test how FileMaker might use different parameters for it's date function.

Michael,
You don't need to have a European version of FM. The date format belong to the "Regional and Language Options" in the control panel of the computer. In my case the date format is DD/MM/YYYY

TIA
Shai
