Banner Tip
Entering dates in Banner INB - In most date fields, entering a single, non-numeric character followed by Enter or Tab will display the current date. Just remember T for Today. A double-click in most date fields brings up a calendar. If you enter a two-digit number in a date field, Banner assumes the current month and year. For example, if you enter 05 and the current month is June and the year 2015, Banner will fill in 05-JUN-2015.
