"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You have two places to change date formats. Long and short date formats are set in your regional settings of your computer. Go to MyComputer, Control Panel, Regional Settings.

Whatever you have set here will be used when you choose long or short date format in Access.

Otherwise you can format a date anyway you want by using the format property for the date field you're working with. Look in your on-line help for specific examples of how to use the format function to display a date in a particular way.

Good Luck!
