Re: date settings

Hi

Yes, this situation is for all Dates Fields in ACT! but only for one of the 6 ACT! users working on the same ACT! version. The Dates fields for the other 5 users are displayed according to their Windows Regional Settings.

 

Thanks again M Laudenslager.

Re: date settings

Check that users regional settings. ACT! uses the local system date settings, not the server settings.

Re: date settings

We have recently installed Act 2011 Pro onto our system and have a problem with how Act! is dislaying the date.  All dates are now displayed in the format mm/dd/yyy, but our reginonal settings are for the UK and other programs display the date as dd/mm/yyyy, which is what we want. We were previously using Act! 2007 and had no problems at all with the date display setting. Please can anyone advice or help please?
