If you plan to use US date format (mm/dd/yyyy) and your operating system and database (if using SQL Server) are also configured to use this format, then you can skip to the next section.
Setting International Date Format
If you would like to use a date format other than the default US date format (mm/dd/yyyy), you should perform the following configuration before adding any problem records.
Please note that the Date Format and Date Delimiter that you select must conform to a date format which your database is configured to use. By default most databases will use the format specified in the "Regional Settings" for your computer. To check the regional settings for your computer, do the following.
In the case of SQL Server 7.0, the default date format is determined by the default language (which may be overridden on a per user basis). To check the default language in use on your SQL Server 7.0 system do the following.
For further information on language settings in SQL Server 7.0 see the following Help Topics in the SQL Server Books Online (to look them up, search for the word "language").
