Hi all,

I am using Excel 2011 for the Mac for the first time and have noticed that when I input a date into a cell using the UK format (dd/mm/yyyy) it always shows the US format (mm/dd/yyyy) when I exit from the cell. I have tried all the usual format changes to change it but it doesn't work.

Does anyone know how to fix this - I am new to Macs so I may need you to spell it out simply for me to find my way around.
