OFF2001: Office Setup Does Not Use Localized Settings for Dates


When you install Microsoft Office 2001 after you have installed Mac OS to use an international setting such as British English or Spanish, dates may use U.S. English formats.


This problem occurs when Office Setup detects that default formats are in use for dates, and so Office simply sets everything to its own default settings, which are U.S. English.


To work around this problem, if Mac OS is installed to use U.S. English settings, change the Date format in Control Panel, to the localized settings required. Then, reinstall Microsoft Office. Office Setup detects and uses the proper localization settings.


Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed at the beginning of this article.
