I am new to the software and am currently entering a lot of historic transactions. Is it true that you can only enter a date by writing it in full with two backslashes and a 4 figure year? I can’t believe this is true, but I have tried almost everything and searched the help files too. [The only reference i can find is a question from Oct-13 asking if the field will accept hyphens instead of backslashes. Answer was negative.]
There appears to be some inconsistency with fields too. Sometimes (VAT return) a date without the full required formatting is ignored and date defaults to today, other times there is a warning, other times a two digit year is accepted (i think).
Thanks for your guidance,
