Changing to Australian Dates

Dates are formatted differently in various countries. If the computer is set to the wrong format, then confusion may occur. For example:

  • Australia’s format is “dd/mm/yyyy” (eg. the 18th of June 2001 is formatted as 18/06/2001)

  • America’s format is “mm/dd/yyyy” (eg. the 18th of June 2001 is formatted as 06/18/2001)
