I have a couple of questions -

 

Is $F{postdate} stored in the database as a date value or as a string?

 

If it is stored as a date, you can use the text field screen the pattern box to format as mm/dd/yyyy. Most of the formats that are brought up with the create button are dd/MM/yyyy - after selecting the format, I change it to MM/dd/yyyy without any issues :)

 

If it is stored as a string you can either use a Java expression to convert to date then display or use Java substring parsing to do the same.
