B.R. Icon Date Label Substitution Rule (%s)

Each date label from the Address Book has an associated Date Type and Substitution Rule. The Substitution Rule (%s) is relevant when exporting out data to iCal. Date Types are used to classify all the date labels from cards in your Address Book. To see how to create a new date type see the Managing Date Types document.
