In essence, the formats inspector does the things…that you would expect it to do.…It's just a place to designate how certain values manifest,…what level of detail.…We have usually in issues like time,…but could also be in one case, how currencies are displayed.…You see the choices here, and on dates,…this is not an either/or check box.…This is, do we include the time of day at all?…So if I uncheck it, we're just going to go by whole days.…
That's a big one.…Do we divide days up into the time of day…or do we just go with whole days,…
