ProForma: Attached PDF occasionally displays the wrong year in a date field

sciencecovskij January 5, 2023

We use forms (formerly ProForma) for inputting issue data. When a form is submitted, a PDF of the form is created and attached to the output.

Recently, we have noticed a strange error: When a date is entered (we use a DatePicker) that is close to the end of the year (e.g. 12/31/2023), the corresponding field in the PDF file is displayed with a value for the year increased by one (12/31/2024 in the example), even though the correct value is stored in a custom field.

Input form:

We noticed the problem late because (a) it does not always occur, so sometimes the date is displayed correctly, and (b) so far it mostly affects December 31 of a year. Since our administration works with the generated PDF documents, confusion arises in such cases, which we would like to avoid, of course.

Any suggestions?

Edit: I'm sorry that I obviously asked this question in the wrong product area (automation). I am new here.
