Out of curiosity, I created a little test form in Forms 6i with your format mask. Running it, I can enter the date and time without the / or :, and all works fine. As soon as I leave the field, Forms automatically re-displays the date and time with the correct punctuation.
Then I compiled that form in Forms 10g and ran it. It works just the same.
There are some internal format mask elements that may have been set for your Forms 10 installation. If you search online help for format mask, you can read a lot. ....more than I want to see.
I am using a plain vanilla installation of 10g: version is 10.1.2.3.0
Can you spell out what internal format mask elements means a little more?
