MYOB – How to change the date format in versions from 2011

images/slashdot.jpegWhen writing dates, do you prefer dots 21.11.2012 or typing slashes 21/11/2012? The date format draws from the Windows settings. But note this will apply to all applications on your computer also. An update to AccountRight from (v2012.9) which allows the dot separator to be used in dates without modifying the Windows settings. But if you still want to change how to enter dates, follow this -

For Windows Vista or Windows 7

1.   Click the Windows logo (the Start button) in the bottom-left corner of your screen and choose Control Panel.

2.   Click Region and Language.

3.   On the Formats tab, click Additional settings.

4.   Click the Date tab.

5.   In the Short date field, click the dropdown arrow and select the preferred short date format.

6.   If you prefer to use a dot (.) as the date separator, replace the "/" characters with dots as shown in the following example.

Note: Clicking Apply will provide an example of your specified date format in the Example section of the window as shown above.

7.   Click OK.

8.   If AccountRight was open, close and re-open it. Dates will now be displayed and can be entered with a dot separator.

For Windows XP

1.   Click the Windows Start button and choose Control Panel.

2.   Click Regional and Language Options.
