Dates format appears with 12 00 00AM in the generated document

 

Problem

Questions where the data type is set to 'Date' will return the date formatted in the long date format as in the following example:

Solution

 

All dates are processed in the time/date format and if a time isn't specified 12:00 AM will be assumed. To remove the unwanted time a format string such as SHORT DATE, LONG DATE, dd/MM/yyyy must be used. Apply a format string by specifying the appropriate sting under the Answer properties.
