DateTime Format Strings (Quick Help)

I suppose I could just bookmark this page, but that wouldn't help others.  I frequently forget (I'm getting old) the format strings while creating custom datetime formulas.  Is there a quick way to get to these format strings when in the context of creating a datetimeparse/datetimeformat formula?

 

Cheers,

Mark

I agree with you @MarqueeCrew - and I would go further. 

 

There's several different treatments of date-time through the application and this would benefit from refactoring to a simpler model.

 

Have a look at this post:
