Issue with printing formatted date

{{ frappe.utils.formatdate(doc.get_formatted(‘posting_date’), “dd-MM-yyyy”) }} prints date in MM-dd-yyyy format

can you elaborate your problem ?

I have created a print format in html
I am trying to print the posting date in it
now the desired format of date is dd-mm-yyyy
so I used this function {{ frappe.utils.formatdate(doc.get_formatted(‘posting_date’), “dd-MM-yyyy”) }}
but it prints month first and then date

eg:- if date is 06-02-2018 it prints 02-06-2018
but if the date is equal to or greater than 10-02-2018 then it prints 10-02-2018

try this code

try this code {{frappe.utils.get_datetime(doc.posting_date).strftime(’%b %d, %Y’) }}
