I have an app on a server in the UK. In order to format the date as US locale ID I put the following in the Session_OnStart in the Global.asa file <BR><BR>Session.LCID = 1033 'This is the English(United States) format.<BR><BR>Now I have a variant called strDate with the value Date(). When I show it on the webpage it shows it just as it should. However when I add a record to the MS Access database with the field set as type Date/Time and set the format to Short Date, the records get added in UK Locale <BR><BR>any ideas why it is doing this??
