Date format in Act 2011

[ Edited ]

 Hi

 

In previous versions I have been able to change the date format to UK standard (ie. dd-mm-yy) but cannot seem to find a way with 2011 - can anyone help please?

If you purchased the US version, from a US reseller (eg on-line), it's likely that you want have the option to change the format.

Providing it's a UK version, it should be a matter of changing the format in the Windows Control panel

Hello team,

I read the issues regarding Date Format. I bought the US Version from a sage site - and have no chance to change the format. What do I have to do to adjust (ACT! 2011 STD) US to my regular Window Environment - which is German (Switzerland)?

Thank you Reto

Fortunately I had purchased the CD as part of the package. It would appear that when you buy from a 'reseller', you get the US version and there is nothing you can do. You will need to get the CD as well.

Always best to by from a local reseller in your country ... there are some issues that are more easily resolved that way
