Hi Glen, and to whom it may concern,

Here we have following problem:

What does 03JUN02 mean? :-(

oops ---> :-)

We should write

02JUN2003
or
2002JUN03

or something this way.

This is important, when producing for different foreign countries, they
have very different methods to write dates.

If it is >only< for the own country, you may use the default. But I would
definitely prefer to write the year in 4 digits.

Best regards
Bernd
