Access and Daye Formats
Is there any way to make Access overrife the computer regional settings for
date formats. I am having problems with mdbs using Canadian date formats
DD/MM/YYYY when installed on systems that have US date formats in regional
settings MM/DD/YYYY. A lot of Canadians it seems simply leave the US
defaults on preinstalled Windows and it causes dates to be screwed up.
Any help appreciated.

I know this can be done, but haven't figured out how yet. I have what
