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!
