Hi Bernd, Dos386,

... or Japanese YYYYMMDD as Bernd mentioned ...

...or all the other date formattings: You can just set your country
depending on your taste. As long as you do not use nlsfunc, nothing
will try to make your keyboard or font Japanese. Simply pick a place
where date, time and number formats match your taste, e.g. German
dd.mm.yyyy hh:mm 1.000,00 for COUNTRY even if your LANG setting for
strings, DISPLAY fonts (if any) and keyboard layout (if any other
than BIOS default US QWERTY) are totally different ;-)


PS: Note that COUNTRY also influences the "yes no characters" and
currency sign and a few other things... Some countries even have a
slightly specific collate order (e.g. how to sort accented chars).
