I am using the Alphapet cover page in Word 2007.
On the cover page is a box for a date.
Is it possible to change the format of the date? for example from 4/29/2009
to April 29 2009 or as I need it to 29. apríl 2009 (the Icelandic version of
todays date).
If I clik Date & Time (Insert - Text) I can change the language from english
og Icelandic so I can put in a new date and delete the date box.
Is there away to change the date box??

Thank you
Hulda in Iceland

Click to select the control, then go to Developer tab > Controls group >
Properties. In the Content control properties dialog, you can select both
the format and the locale (language) for that control.

If the Developer tab is not in your ribbon, add it by going to Word options
> Popular and clicking the box next to 'show developer tab in ribbon'.

From the Developer Tab (which you may not yet have displayed - Word Options
> Popular) with the cursor in the date field select Design Mode then
Properties.
