    Date format on fax cover pages (XP SP2)

    Can anyone please assist me to change the date format from the US mm/dd/yyyy to yyyy/mm/dd or dd/mm/yyyy when using Windows fax service?

    Regional settings does not seem to make a difference on fax cover pages.

    There is some info on editing the cover page format here:
    Fax Cover Page Overview
    I've never used it myself, but hopefully there will be a way to set or edit the date field.

    Did you follow the link in Lief's last post ???? It seems that you can do what you want using the FAX Cover Page Editor. Either by editing a template or creating one from scratch.

    I will have a look again. Thanks for your replies. Am I the only one who hates the US date format? ;-)

    What I find funny is that the preview of the fax before sending it shows the date format as specified in Regional settings, but the actual fax sent has the US format. Obviously somebody at Microsoft did not spend enough time when the fax add-in was developed.

    You are most certainly not the only one!!!

    One thing you could try is to change the regional short date format to dd-MMM-yy which *may* force it to display Oct-01-04, but I wouldn't hold my breath.
