    Insert Tab --> Date & Time --> Language set to U.K From the drop down menu before you insert the date ?

    Also what settings have you checked or looked at ?

    Yep, all settings are showing English UK and our date format. I have checked the settings in Word, regional settings on the pc spell check regional settings etc. All set to UK.

    close word down, show all hidden files and folders ( folder options in control panel ) --> find the relevant default template files which is generally in the user profile or default user profile somewhere --> delete them, re launch word and try again ?

    Could be language prefs, Select All (Ctrl + A) and go to Review>Language>Set Proofing Language.

    Entirely odd, you could upload the document so some of us here can open it and see if it happens for us or not..

    Was it entered as a Word field? If you press ALT+F9 (to toggle view all field codes) you can edit the field code to format the date how you want it:

    Code:
    {DATE  \@ "dd/MM/yyyy" \* MERGEFORMAT }
