RE: Get exact creation date of a document Carl Tyler 31.Jul.18 10:46 AM Lotus Notes Domino Designer All ReleasesAll Platforms
Why would you want to store a date value as text? This is not a good idea, and not a good practise, you're just creating issues for developers in the future.
Are you getting inconsistent results in documents that already existed before you added this formula? You just want to use a "Computed for display" field, and @created instead of @now.
Also if you do use @now, best to assign a temp value to @now at the beginning of the formula and use the temp value throughout.
