    Changing Reminder date format in Outlook

    When a reminder appears in Outlook it is of the format 12/19/2005 eg for representing the 19th of december

    However, being here in the UK this is an alien way to carry on with dates

    So - how do I change it to 19/12/2005? format

    Appreciate any help

    Its controlled from your windows time/date settings.

    Control Panel > Regional and Language Options.

    On the Regional Options tab select English (United Kingdom) from the Standards and formats drop down menu and click Apply,OK.

    yep - you were right

    but I had to select a 'customise' tab in there under advanced settings
    had to restart outlook to make the changes come into effect


    but cheers for the help anyway
