Why do PinkNotes® dates have day and month reversed?

Postby AlphaMedia » Tue Sep 16, 2008 3:37 pm

In the U.S. the most common short date format order used is month before day (i.e., m/d/yyyy). Outside the U.S. many countries display the day before the month in the short date format (i.e., d/m/yyyy). If the short date format on the PinkNotes® Plus Master machine is setup in a different order then the format on the PinkNotes® Client machines then the dates will not display correctly in PinkNotes® Plus.

To check what short date format your PinkNotes® Plus Master is using please do the following. First, go to the machine that the PinkNotes® Master software is installed on. Click on the Windows Start button and select Run. Type in "regedit" and click OK. Go to the folder:

HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\International

In that folder double-click on the key "sShortDate". Set this key to the desired short date format that you would like to use. Here are some examples, d/m/yyyy, m/d/yyyy, dd/mm/yy, mm/dd/yy.
