While the classic method uses the well-known dd.mmyyyy or mm.ddyyyy notation, i.e. a number with six decimals that is supposed to be displayed in FIX 6 mode, here is another way using the fraction display: Code: ```D001 LBL D D002 ENTER D003 /c     ; set denominator D004 / D005 + D006 STO D D007 SF 8   ; set appropriate flags D008 SF 9   ; for fixed denominator D009 VIEW D``` 23 [ENTER] 5 [ENTER] 2017 [XEQ] [D]  =>  D= 23 5/2017 The idea is to display the value of (day + month/year) in fraction mode with a fixed denominator that equals the year. This works for dd mm/yyyy as well as for mm dd/yyyy. Note that the max. year / denominator is 4095, and year > month. Dieter RE: Date display on HP35s - Matt Agajanian - 05-23-2017 03:44 PM Brilliant stroke of genius! Thanks RE: Date display on HP35s - Vtile - 05-23-2017 04:47 PM Uh, really nice idea. This reminds me to return to another topic, like I promised. RE: Date display on HP35s - PANAMATIK - 05-23-2017 05:56 PM Just agree. A brilliant genius idea! Bernhard RE: Date display on HP35s - Joe Horn - 05-23-2017 11:17 PM Dieter's great idea works on the HP 32SII, 33S, and 35s, all of which use flags 8 and 9 the same way to allow fixed denominators (without reducing them) up to 4095.
