    Date/Time Stamp

    Is there any possibility to change the way "Date/Time stamp" parameter looks in a label?

    I've created a titleblock, and added a label with "Date/Time stamp". I only need it to look like:

    mm/yyyy

    not the hole time.

    Thank you.

    The date stamp parameter in Revit responds to the date format that you establish in Windows' control settings.

      So there is no possibility to display that parameter as I want to? Do I need to create a new one?
      What will happen if the project will be opened in another computer in a year? The date in the titleblock will change?

      Thank you,

        If that format is available in Windows' control settings, the date stamp parameter in Revit will show that format. If the project is opened in another computer in a year from now, it will probably show the current date in that operating system's current date format. The date in the titleblock is just a text, not a date, so it will not change. Just the date stamp will change.

          Thank you Alfredo,

          I used Project Issue Date parameter.

            Well, but a date/stamp label serves a different purpose than a Project Issue Date. Also, the date/stamp label takes the date value from the system, and the Project Issue Date's value is manual input. Now I am about what you were trying to do.

              I hate necroing an old thread but I'm trying to do the same thing as the OP. We want just the date portion of the Date/Time Stamp. Don't care about format, just don't need the time. The point here is to not have to manually put in the date the plot was made everytime you plot, as opposed to a project issue date which is usually (hopefully) a set date that will not change every time you plot a sheet. If anyone has any ideas, or if Jose can whip up a quick Application macro to fill in this info that would be super!

                Well, this is an old thread. Anyway I am also trying to modify the Date/Time Stamp but in a different way to the OP.

                My Date/Time Stamp keeps giving me the alternate format of Month/Day/Year, who came up with this format anyway? :crazy:

                Perhaps that question is best left for another thread!

                Anyway, I'm in Australia and over here we display our date as Day/Month/Year and I can't figure out how to change the format in Revit. My system format is Day/Month/Year so I have my doubts that it is solely dependent upon my machine's settings. While I can manually change the format in the project, it will reset when I close the project. Can't find much information by the way of Googling either.

                Does anyone have any insight or perhaps a solution to this issue?

                  This issue has been brought to Autodesk's attention. As of now, we're still waiting.
