This may be something simple stupid but in QGIS 2.4 I have created a date column. How do I enter the date in correctly. Every time I type a date in, in whatever format it does not move that entered date into my attribute table. So I click on the table and open the form and try again but it never saves my entered data for the date.
Not stupid at all buddy! Everyone has to learn sometime :)
You may have already tried the way I am going to describe as I use QGIS 2.2 instead of 2.4.
Open the attribute table, select New column and add the name and change the type:
The format I normally use is
YYYY-MM-DD when typing in the Date column:
Hope this helps.
In 2.4 there is even calendar widget ("date picker"). In the layers "Fields" tabs, select "Date/Time" widget for a date field and check "calendar popup" option in widget detail settings.
