I saw a post on another forum asking for a switch to output all empty dates as blank instead of the Dataflex "zero" date of 01/01/1753.

Other applications using MS-SQL as the backend, such as Microsoft Dynamics accounting packages typically use 01/01/1900 as their empty date value.

In Dynamic AI you can define a global system parameter holding a date value that will then be displayed as blank in all reports. No need to write formulas to test for value, convert to text and output blanks.

Under Administration / System / System Parameters, you would just add the highlighted entry shown below.
