Auto replace date on mail merge
Our office lady is having some issues with Mail merge, when the data comes into MS word the date reverts to MM/dd/yyyy, US format. I have checked language settings in word and excel, dug about and changed the mail merge field properties - which broke it! And now I am getting peeved. Any ideas?

Where is the data coming from? Is that passing it it in US format?

I checked the Excel sheet formatting and it is all set to English UK, it was fine before she got married and we made a new account for her.

Yes, it didn't work either. Well, it sort of did. It put the correct date in but wouldn't merge more than the first line after that.
I'll re-set her profile and hope that works.
