date format

Hi Gurus,

My question is how SAP manages a link between our date and not our date?

To be more clear I do give you an example: Today it is 2011/01/18 but for example based on Iranian date today it is 1389/10/28. Based on which date the system displays the dates is indicated on user level (see user master and a folder u201CDefaultsu201D with a field u201CDate formatu201D (DATFM)).

Many thanks already in advance.

      if you read data from tables via ABAP code in debug mode , you will see that all dates are saved in one format (yyyymmdd) and before display ,the data are converted into user profile date format.there fore the rule is not complex.

      in SU3 you can change your default date format.

      on more thing that you should know is that there is customizing to map system periods to Iranian months and periods , but i don't know path for this in SPRO , ask this question from FI guys or go

      [ (SAP IRAN in LINKDIN)|]

      and open a new discussion .
