i would like a calulated field called "RW_dateentered" to convert a field called "HB_dateadded" like in the subject. i tried

Right( DateAdded , 4 ) & "-" & Middle( DateAdded, "3" , 2 ) & "-" & Left( DateAdded , 2 )

but it doesnt work. any ideas?

Assuming that DateAdded is a date field and not a text field.....

Option 1:

You can just custom format the date field to display yyyy-mm-dd. Plunk the DateAdded field onto your layout and select the date options in the format menu.

Option 2:

If you want to do it the hard way, then you can use this formula:

Year(DateAdded)&"-"&Month(DateAdded),&"-"&Day(DateAdded)

The calculation result should be set to text.
