    Custom Date Formats (Project XP)

    Hi,
    Has anyone ever formatted the start and finish date fields to something other than the formats listed in either the Tools menu or the More Tables edit list? I want Day/Month/Year...I don't see that as an option and can't get a formula to do it. Any ideas?
    Thanks,
    Jackie

    Re: Custom Date Formats (Project XP)

    One way to do this globally is to change the windows date settings.

    On your machine, select Start, Control Panel, Regional Settings (Options..), Select the Date Tab, and change the short date format to dd-MMM-yy.

    All of your dates in MS Project will default to this format. Of course, this will effect other applications on your machine.

    HTH
