User Defined Date From Dataset

Hi all,


I'm very much a newbie with EG so applogies if this is something obvious,


I'm trying to use EG to create a userdefined format from a dataset.


My dataset is two date columns, I want to use the second as the label, however I keep getting the error - Variable label has been defined as both character and numeric. The dates are fien so I cant figure out what I'm doing wrong.


My settings are:






Any help appreciated
