how do you change the date format (SK98)?

how do you change the date format (SK98)?

I reinstalled SK98. Everything is ok except when I want to insert a date with ctrl D I get the year in 4 digits like this 8/5/2008: before I had it with 2 digits like that 8/5/08:  I would like to have it in 2 digits, but don't know how to change it.
thank you,

RE: how do you change the date format (SK98)?

Dear waltraud1,

The answer is in the Control Panel but it will alter the way All the programs show dates.
Take  note of how the format works before you change
Open the Control Panel and go to Regional and language options and change the way the Short Date displays by clicking on Customise this format.

RE: how do you change the date format (SK98)?

Dear Jim,
Thank you very much. I should have known, but forgot. My hard drive had to be replaced and everything re-installed. I can only think that I must have been asleep not to remember that it's in the windows control panel.
