Hi Philippe, see attached screen shots if you are more visual.

Based on your example, that would do it:

--

IF(Dateofbirth, DATETIME_FORMAT(Dateofbirth, 'DD MMMM YYYY'), "Enter your birthday date")

--

 

There might be other ways to do it. Hope it helps.

Cheers.

Matt

Hey @Philippe_Creve_ !

Here's a formula that accomplishes what you're looking for:

IF(
  {Date},
  DATETIME_FORMAT(
    {Date},
    "DD MMMM YYYY"
  ),
  "Please Enter Your Birthday"
)

Feel free to pop your own preferred message into the formula if you'd like to change it around.
