As you may or may not know, when you upgrade your map editor from one version to another, you loose your Custom Date formats. You need to manually add them in the new map editor under Options/Date Formats. Well, with IBM Sterling B2B Integrator 5.2.3 there is a way to do this now!
Within the directory where you install the map editor, there is an extract_date_formats.cmd file that will allow you to extract date formats from a previous version.
Without parameters specified, the command extracts date formats in previous Sterling B2B Integrator Map Editor versions from the registry, or from an existing custom_date_formats.ini file.
If you provide a file path, the utility uses the date formats in the file from the supplied path.
For version 5.2.3 going forward the custom_date_formats.ini file can be copied from the config directory within the map editor folder from the old version to the new.
So, now you can Save the Date!
