    I have designed a program that uses dates extensively. It is now being used
    in China by a user whose machine is set up in a yyyy-mm-dd format. They are
    having a problem that I need to troubleshoot. I have changed my short date
    setting in Control Panel/Regional Settings but this does not affect the
    medium date format. I would like my machine to temporarily default to
    yy-mmm-dd for medium dates. Is this possible?

    If the programme you're talking about is an access d base you should change
    the format in the table. When you change the ate/time format on the control
    panal you are NOT change the saved data but simply the way in which it's
    displayed

    Hope this helps

    As far as I can recall, there's no way to change the Medium Date format: the
    Short Date and Long Date come from Regional Settings, but I think the Medium
    Date is built into Access.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
