Date Formats

The format of input dates is flexible in that you don't have to specify all the fields. Reasonable assumptions are made if you leave out field, like if the time part is ommited then it's assumed to be 00:00:00. If you leave off the year then it's assumed to be the current year. When specifying a time period it's often best to pick start of the day after the period you want, for example if you want the whole month of Feburary you'd use 1/2/yyyy as the start and 1/3/yyyy as the end. Because the time defaults to 00:00:00 on the 1st of March, not the end of that day (i.e. not including the 1st of March).

You can format dates in any of the following ways:
