All Synergetic workstations need to be set up with four-digit years so that the dates can function properly.

If the default date format is either the US date format or only shows two digits of the year, you must change the format to dd/mm/yyyy. If the full four-digit year is not shown, Windows may incorrectly enter a date in the wrong century. For example, if you enter a birth date as 1/3/45, Windows will assume this is 2045, not 1945.

To change the date format on your PC:

  1. Select Start > Settings > Control Panel > Regional Settings.
  2. Make sure you have the correct International settings for Windows. This needs to be set to your region, for example English Australia.
  3. Ensure that on the date tab the short date style is d/MM/yyyy (you will probably just need to type yy at the end).
