After Creating a List Applet which contains two List Columns: let's call them "A" and "B".

The date in List Column A should be displayed as follows: MM.YYYY
Whereas the date in List Column B should be displayed normally, which is: DD.MM.YYYY

Configured therefore the property 'Display Format' for List Column A to "MM.YYYY".

Following issue: After entering a date in the List Column A if we try to enter a value in List Column B (e.g. we pick 2.11.2012), then following error message

is displayed:
- - -
"11.2012” Can't convert formatted string to its internal representation.
Please check if your data is in correct format.
- - -

When we first enter a value into List Column B and then into List Column A no error occurs.
