I am filling out an online form from a state government. It requires the date to be entered in the format MM/DD/YYYY.

 

May 1, 2020 would therefore be entered 05/01/2020. What appears, however, is 5/1/2020.

 

I’ve looked online for help. What I could find was to either enter a string of code or instructions to set the format to none.

 

I see no place on this online form where I set the format to none or enter a string of code.

 

My only option at this point is to print out the form in the 5/1/2020 format, enter the leading zeros by hand, scan the document and then send it.

 

If anyone knows an easy fix, it would be appreciated.

This is something the form's author should have done. You can't fix it using the free Reader.
