Hi, in the attachment, I have a Macro Button called "Test" which populates amongst others in Column AI a field called "Date of Break". For some reason, the rows highlighted in the attachment have populated American-style dates, instead of European. Can anyone tell me why?

Try setting the format of the cells using
Cells(x, x).NumberFormat = "dd/mm/yyyy"

Do you need to change your locale settings?

go to control panel... select Region and Language Options...

there under the formats tab, you should be able to select the local you want... and then modify specific formats if they are not what you expect....

So for example you may want to select

English (United Kingdom)  rather than English (United States).

After that, you can still choose various formats as defaults for your date settings.

I do not understand as only 6 rows in 300 rows shows the Date in American Format.Please look at the attachment to tell me why its only a minority of Cells.

My guess would be that the other ones were entered as text and those were entered as dates, hence they are influenced by the locale settings.

Is it possible that the workbook was created on a different machine with locale settings set to UK.... and then when you ran the macro... it used your locale settings of United States?
