This has been an ongoing problem

I would like for the date to take the format
international yyyy,MM,dd
No matter what regional settings I give, it just won't .

What am I missing.

Do you hate GETPIVOTDATA?
Prevent GETPIVOTDATA. Select inside a PivotTable. In the Analyze tab of the ribbon, open the dropown next to Options and turn it off

Well, you could just select the cells that have the date and instead of formatting it as date, select "custom" from the list and enter yyyy/mm/dd.

I don't think there's a way to set it to automatically format that way for default, unless someone's got a macro somewhere.

Hope it helps,
