I have noticed a difference in the way a datetime field displays in an
InfoMaker report from one PC to another. When I use the [shortdate]
format on some PC's the date will show as mm/dd/yyyy and on others it
shows mm/dd/yy. I have not been able to determine why it is different
on PC's with the same configuration.

It depends on the setting in the Control panel. Assuming you are using
Windows 95, check out the 'Regional Settings'.
