Currency and date formats

Postby MikeA » 04 Jan 2016, 12:20

As a new user I am not sure how to change the date and currency $ format to £. when downloading account QIF from my bank I think its possible that the date is DD/MM/YYYY but read as MM/DD/YYYY so values go to wrong months and day. Can anyone suggest a solution as I really like this program

Hi MikeA,
Finance Explorer uses the date and currency format from Windows. If those are incorrect you will have to change them from Windows itself. Here is a link from Microsoft that might help with that:
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-ca/windows/change-dates-times-currency-measurements-display#1TC=windows-7

That link is for Windows 7 but you should be able to change the version on that page to get steps that match your version of Windows.

Hope this helps,
Metalogic

Thank you, all dates and the currency is now correct. I'm using windows 10 so changing the settings was quite straight forward.
Thanks again.
