Formatting dates when mailmerging

  Mobility 13:53 02 Feb 2004

When mail merging in Word the date format as taken from an Excel file is wrong. A field in the Excel file is 23/1/2004 but appears in the Word document as 1/23/2004 - the usual U.S. format. Cahanging the Excel format to 23 January 2004 still gives the same fault. Any ideas?

Have you checked in Word. Go to Insert, Date and Time, Pick the format you want in the lefthand window. In the righthand window make sure language is English (UK).
