Goal

Business requirement is to show in a Proposal Template a table from a MVG field – a List of Products with Start / End dates formatted as DD MMMM YYYY (i.e. 5 July 2006). These dates are formatted correctly in the Siebel Applet after some customization. When the data is merged into the Proposal Document, the dates are formatted as follows: DD/MM/YYY. 

Why is the formatting used in the applet not used in the Proposal Template – Products Table and what is needed to make it look like in the Siebel Applet?
