Hello Friends,

I am looking for a code snippet that would allow me to change registry settings, especially the short date format (sDateFormat, i believe) in VBA for Access. I think even VB would be the same. Can someone please help me with that...

Thanks,
Srinivas

it would be the SaveSetting() function, but you would need to know the location of the data you want to change

Hello bramsquad,

This is what I want to change:

SDate in
HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\International\

And I want the change to be affected across the whole application...

Any ideas...

Thanks
Srinivas
