Address Book Birthdays - Mac Applications & Software

Hi all! First post to c.s.m.apps, so treat me gently! :o) Just wondering if anyone knows a way to change the default date input format for birthdays in Address Book? It seems to default to the US MM/ DD/YY format, and I'd prefer to have it DD/MM/YY. My system settings are UK, but Address Book doesn't seem to care. Any help much appreciated!

    Default Address Book Birthdays

    Hi all!

    First post to c.s.m.apps, so treat me gently! :o)

    Just wondering if anyone knows a way to change the default date input
    format for birthdays in Address Book? It seems to default to the US MM/
    DD/YY format, and I'd prefer to have it DD/MM/YY. My system settings are
    UK, but Address Book doesn't seem to care.

    Any help much appreciated!

    Andy.

    Andy, are you sure you changed the short date format as well as the
    regional date setting? Setting the region to UK doesn't change the date
    format to dd/mm/yy; you have set both on the "Date" tab of the
    International preference pane.

    Yes, that's all changed and happy. I've just tried altering it and
    setting it back again, but it seems to make no odds to Address Book. I
    was wondering if maybe the input for the Birthday field is controlled
    somewhere within its murky depths... :o/

    Thanks for the suggestion, though. Any more ideas? :o)

    Andy.

    Birthdays! I never knew that address book had a birthday field. Cool.
    For me the format address book shows is governed by the "Long date"
    format in the international preferences setting. And if I switch that,
    Address book does the correct thing.

    It does - but if you try entering 01/02/03 for 1st February, 2003, you
    actually end up with 2nd January, 2003, regardless of whether you have
    set up the international settings to accept DD/MM/YY as the short date
    format! Bummer...

    Glad you know about the Birthday field now, tho. That's one positive
    outcome! :o)

    Any more hints, anyone?

    Andy.
