    Money 99

    I have changed my date format in Windows 98(Regional Setting) but when I used Money 99 the date format is not likewise reflected. If for example the date in Windows is set to 12 Mar 01, that in Money is shown as 12 3 01. Whereas if Windows is set to 12/03/01, Money also shows 12/03/01. There is no information from Microsoft about this problem. Is there a fix for the date format in Money?

    I don't use Money, so I don't have any specific information. However, a number of Microsoft products seem to exhibit this behavior of honoring the date separator character from the Control Panel, but ignoring the date format. For example, when you tell Excel to put the system date into the printed header or footer, it does this. Fortunately, in Excel you can get around this by using VBA code to format the date and put it into the header of footer in the BeforePrint event procedure. Does Money support VBA?

    Thanks for your response. It would appear that Money has no facility for programming.

    Just tried this with Money 2001 and Windows 95, and got the same (so upgrading ain't gonna help!). Looks like Money just doesn't want to see anything other than digits and delimiters in that date column <img src=/S/hmmn.gif border=0 alt=hmmn width=15 height=15>.

    Thanks Steve,

    I have given up on the idea. Looks like Microsoft just do what they think the buyer wants, not what they actually need.
