Formats and Dates on documents
This is a small hint for everybody that spent time on customizing documents not able to figure out why the number and date formatting does not work as they expected.
The important hint is to know that the formatting is not linked to the client or organisation but to the business partner that is used in the document. So if you for instance want to generate an invoice with german settings (date=DD.MM.YYYY) you set the language of the business partner to german. Furthermore you may define custom formats within the record for the german language that is then automatically used within the invoice. Here a link to the manual where the field in business partner window is described.
