I'm using Outlook 2003 and some how I changed the way my date is showing in my calendar. If I click on calendar it is showing as 3/17 at the top of the Day view instead of Thursday, March 17. How do I change this back?

I've read a few articles that say Outlook gets is calendar settings from the OS regional settings.

Read these:

This is simple steps to do it

Change date settings in Microsoft Windows XP

   1. Click Start, click Control Panel, and then double-click Regional and Language Options.
   2. On the Regional Options tab, under Standards and formats, click Customize.
   3. On the Date tab, specify any changes that you want to make, under Short date and Long date.

Just keep short date format and long date format as dd MMMM yyyy

This appears to be controlled by your "Regional and Language" options in your control panel.  You might want to check to see what your long date format is set to and modify if necessary.

Ok I misunderstood where this is happening. This is happening only in our Citrix Env. I logged into our Citrix server and openned the citrix client. and everything looks fine. Confirmed the Regional and Language Options are set properly. I keep this client open and log into the web Citrix portal and launch Oulook. The date format changes to 11/25. Look over at my client that I have open on the server and it has refreshed also to 11/25. Look at the Regional and Language Options and they are still correct on the server. Something is overwritting the Regional and Language Options. Any thoughts?

You might want to change it to a Citrix group as well because that is where the issue is occuring.
