Store or convert custom field value as text

I am trying to save the "updated" date field value to another field as text to display it as a version.

I tried to do this by copying updated field value to text customfield but it dispays as DD/MM/YY hh:mm. I am trying to display it as DDMMYYhhmm or even add a static text in front like: [text]-DDMMYYhhmm.

Any ideas?

This widget could not be displayed.

One thing you could do is use the "Message Custom Field" from the tookit plug to display it however you want..

Thanks Michael, it seems like there is a bug for that field not displaying for version 6.0.x and later
