I have recently read in a magazine that I can use the Alt + Shift + D keys when using MS word to set a date for use when writing letters etc. I have tried it, but, it shows the date in USA format. I have tried to correct it to show English format, which I did, and I pressed the default button, which I assumed would then set it to be the default, but, the next time I tried to use it, it had reverted back to the USA system again. I have Office XP Pro. installed. Can anyone assist please?
Thanks Gr@h@m but my regional settings are already set as English UK and in that same box the date is shown as being correctly set, yet, everytime I use those shortcut keys of Alt + Shift + D in Word it just opens the "Date Time" window and I have to re-enter the format I want to use??!!
Big Elf, can you try to re-insert the date again to see if it works without the extra input a second time, as it worked for me the first time but then I had to re-enter all the same information the next time to put it back to English UK, despite having pressed the default button
Great, it must be something wrong I'm doing then because pressing the default button after changing the format just brings up a window which says " Is there somewhere in MS Word where you set as default the language as English UK?
