    The date format is set with the Field Map Layout’s “FORMAT” dropdown… Select “DATE” then select “dd/mm/yyyy”.

    Let us know if more assistance is required as we remain at your service.

    The “FORMAT” dropdown is not enabled in the free version, in this case use a regular single line text field and place “dd/mm/yyyy” in the fields description to prompt uses to enter text in the correct format.

    Sounds like you may need to use the “Comb” field format in the PDF, or hidden fields in the Formidable Form, or possibly some custom javascript code.

    Are you able to send an example PDF form to support AT formidablepro2pdf DOT com for evaluation?

    To merge the PDF example you provided custom PHP or javascript could be used to to populate three hidden fields, then map the hidden fields to three PDF text fields. Or, if data separator’s “/” can be included, then use the PDF field’s “Comb of” setting…

    …here’s an example merge of the “Comb of” setting.

    In the example you’ll see a screenshot of the “Comb of” setting in Acrobat. The three fields above not populating, they would require custom PHP or the purchase of our “Format Add-on Plugin” which will allow you to add a date format to the list of field map formats.
