Re: How can I change date format on QB 2019 for MAC? I need the DD/MM/YY format

Hello SECIMED!

 

The date format in QuickBooks depends on the date format in your System Preferences. You can close QuickBooks and open that setting. Then, change the format to DD / MM / YY. After that, reopen the QuickBooks and continue working on your company file.

 

If there's anything that we can help, feel free to go back to this thread.

 

Have a good day!

I´ve tried that and it doesn´t work for the invoices. The other things such as Bank Accounts and Reports have the format DD/MM/YY. There´s a way to change it in QB directly?

Hi @SECIMED,

 

The same as mentioned by my colleague above, there aren't any preferences for your date format in QuickBooks Desktop for Mac.

 

In the meantime, you can verify and rebuild your company file consider only your invoices date isn't affected of the changes in your preferences. Here's how:

  1. Go to File.
  2. Select Utilities.
  3. Choose Verify Utility.
  4. Click OK.

After that, here's how you can rebuild your company file:

  1. Go to File.
  2. Select Utilities.
  3. Choose Rebuild Utility.
  4. Click OK.

This way, your invoice date will now be updated the same as your set up in your preferences.

 

Lastly, here's an article you can read to learn more about verify and rebuild tool: Resolve Data Damage on your Company File.

 

While this option isn't available, I can pass along your request to our product developers. They can consider including a date format preference for future product updates.

 

This would be a great option for users like you who wanted to set a specific date format for your transactions.

It should work for invoices, too.  What invoice field is it not working on?
