Within the past few days (MS update happened), my dates are appearing different. I am running Ms Office Pro 2003 on Win 10 Home.
All dates that were mm/dd/yyyy are now appearing as m dd yy (without the underline). Is there a pace I can reset globally and make my preferred format the default?

This has also happened on all my Access programming.

Thanks

Joe4 you are correct. I wanted to change the display in the taskbar from m/dd/yy to ddd mm/dd/yyyy. The problem wass NOT at all related to the MS update. This caused all the other problems. I reset the display date back and ALL my Access and Visual Basic programs that use the date work correctly. No more crashing.

Thank you Joe4.

With all the different forums, I never remember which one request to mark thread as solved.!!!!!!
