This is one of the annoying problems with dates in general. I have even
more fun since the preferred format for MY customers is dd/mm/yyyy and
some of the time IBO correctly converts that to m/d others it does not
and I have to handle it myself. You will not have that problem, but
certainly setting the short date format at the start of the program
kills many of the holes - just not necessarily all of them :(
