Filemaker 24-hour format on timestamp field

MarkJulie used Ask the Experts™
I have a simple question. I have a database in FMPA 11 with just under 5000 records. I had to replace a hard drive on my MacBook Pro and reinstall FMPA. All my timestamp fields that previously displayed as 24-hour HH:mm:ss now display as 12-hour. My system clock uses 24-hour, and I have told FM to use the system format. How do I fix it?
