SAP Business By Design

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Navigate to the Application and User Management work centre
  2. Go to the Form Template maintenance view
  3. Find a Customer invoice
  4. Click Actions
  5. Either create an e-mail template or maintain an e-mail subject.

Result: the date format will be that which is maintained in the template.


Neither the e-mail template nor the e-mail subject can be converted via a script.


If if the placeholder is  XML <PaymentDate>2020-11-27</PaymentDate> please be aware that the date format will be shown as

2020-11-27. As of now there is no way of converting this format into i.e. 27.11.2010
