Hi experts, I'm doing some vbscripting and I'm using the MonthName () as well as WeekdayName() functions.
My problem is that though these functions return results allright, the result strings are not in english
e.g. MonthName(10,true) returns 'okt' and WeekdayName(2) returns 'mandaag'
I want these results in english, how do I do it
I've checked my Regional and Language settings and the language is
English(United States)

Try adding:

<% Session.LCID = 1033 %>

Place this at the top of the page, or in your global.asa file.  This changes the Locale ID to the US setting.
