The date format of the specified Date. You can use one of the following options:

YY Year (two digits). For example, 99, 00, 01, and so on.
YYYY Year (four digits). For example, 1999, 2000, 2001, and so on.

Year (two or four digits). If you provide two digits, it uses the YY format. If you provide four digits, it uses the YYYY format.

For example, it interprets 07 as 2007 AD and 1007 as 1007 AD.

#Y Year (one to a maximum of 16 digits), optionally followed by AD or BC. An apostrophe (') immediately before the year denotes a truncated year. For example, 2008, '97 (interpreted as 1997), 97 (interpreted as 97 AD), '08 (interpreted as 2008), 2008 AD, and 200 BC. A truncated year with a BC identifier is not valid ('08 BC).
#FULLYEAR Year (one to a maximum of 16 digits). For example, 8, 98, 108, 2008, each of which is taken literally. The year is taken relative to the common EPOCH (0 AD).
#YEARSIGN A plus (+) or minus (-) sign at the start of your date. A plus sign (+) represents AD/CE years, and a minus sign (-) represents BC/BCE years. If you specify the #YEARSIGN option as part of a date format, the plus or minus sign is not optional.

Time period. For example, AD, CE, BC, BCE, or any predefined list of EPOCH indicators. Typically, the year specified in the above formats is interpreted as untruncated and relative to the EPOCH. For example, 84 AD is interpreted as 1984 AD, and 84 BC is interpreted as 84 BC.

The only exception to this is when you use both #YY+ and #ADBC. In this case, the format is interpreted as untruncated, even if the year was set to truncated by #YY+. For example, 99 AD is interpreted as the year 99 AD.

HPE recommends that you use only YY, YYYY, or #FULLYEAR with #ADBC.

LONGMONTH A long month, for example, January, February, and so on.
SHORTMONTH A short month, for example, Jan, Feb, and so on.
MM Month (two digits). For example, 01, 10, 12, and so on.
M+ Month (one or two digits). For example, 1,2,3,10, and so on.
DD Day (two digits). For example, 01, 02, 03, 12, 23, and so on.
D+ Day (one or two digits). For example, 1, 2, 12, 13, 31, and so on.
LONGDAY Two digits with a postfix. For example, 1st, 2nd, and so on.
HH Hour (two digits). For example, 01, 12, 13, and so on.
H+ Hour (one or two digits).
NN Minute (two digits).
N+ Minute (one or two digits).
SS Second (two digits).
S+ Second (one or two digits).
F Milliseconds (one digit).
FF Milliseconds (two digits).
FFF Milliseconds (three digits).
F+ Milliseconds (one to three digits).
ZZZ Time zone, for example, GMT, EST, PST, and so on.
ZZZZZ Time difference (one to nine digits). For example, +04 denotes four hours ahead of UTC. Other examples include +4, +04, +0400, +0400 MSD (the string MSD is ignored). A further example is +030. In this case the time difference is interpreted as 30 minutes.
#PM An AM or PM indicator (two characters). For example, 2001/09/09 02:46:40 PM.
#S A space.
