 Hi Gianluigi
Are you referring to this portion: Randomize  $hConn.Begin()  For i = 0 To $nRecords    nCasual = Rand(0, 30)    sName = aFirstName[nCasual]    nCasual = Rand(0, 30)    sSurname = aLastName[nCasual]    y = Rand(1959, 2000)    m = Rand(1, 12)    d = Rand(1, 28)    hDate = Date(y, m, d)    hResult = $hConn.Create("tuser")    hResult!usnam = sName    hResult!ussur = sSurname    hResult!usdat = hDate    hResult.Update  Next
I actually found the code difficult to decipher but looking at it again I assume you are referring to hDate = Date(y, m, d)?

 I had shown you the correct code you need to look at in Report1.

 Ok, so I'm back with the same problem. It seems to me Gambas has a template format for a date and trying to change it is impossible? As soon as Gambas sees it as a date, it reformats my formatting back to the incorrect format and renders all the code useless. Is this the way it is supposed to be? 
I need my date formatted to sqlite format, eg, yyyy-mm-dd
However, soon as I do that, gambas switches it to mm/dd/yyyy.
My OS regional settings are correct. Using Mint 18.3 KDE and Gambas 3.13 (Thanks Charlie for the upgrade tip)
The latter format is useless over here and inevitably gambas reads the day and month wrong, by switching it... I've tried using Split and in a debug /print statement I see that it does do exactly what I need, but once the format hits the textbox, Gambas actually changes it back to mm/dd/yyyy. How do I stop that? I tried DIM'ing the dates as Strings but Gambas seems to read dates as dates even if they are dimensioned as strings? (which I know they are 'special' strings of course).
My sqlite3 database complains whenever I try and save the dates in Gambas's preferred format.
I know I am doing something wrong since no one else has this issue.... but what?

  Thank you very much Charlie and Gianluigi. Those were pointers in the right direction for me! I really appreciate your help. (Not to mention I just learned a lot from both of your code too.)
