How to change the Leave Date format

Hi Experts,

We are using SAP EP 7.0. In the ESS applications, date is being displayed in the format mm/dd/yyyy. I would to display the date in the format dd/mm/yyyy. Please let me know how to do it.

I tried to change the setting of IE --> Language from US to UK and vise versa. However it is not helping. Please let me know how the application picks up the date format. Does it come from backend? Do I have to change some spro setting? Or there are large no of conditions involved in determining date format.

Please help.

    date format is usually influenced by the browser language,

    ie UME can play a influence if you maintain in r/3 otherwise R/3 doesnt have a effect

    Read teh note 947081



    Please have a look at the Note 947081, Now on a broader level

    this can be achieved by the Note mentioned above.

    the hierarchy of what locale a component will be shown in the portal,

    will be :

    1)component- if he have a locale define

    2) portal mandatory locale -( that's what we suggest)

    3)user locale

    4)browser locale

    5)Portal default locale

    6) system locale

    Change the Date Format to dd/mm/yyyy in R/3 SU01 - Defaults

    If this doesn't help try changing the Format Country in Address tab of SU01 usually this field is hidden you need to modify the screen to have these fields visible. Check with your security team to enable the fields.

    Make sure with business if this is applicable for the whole population, because making a change will effect for all the users.

    Hope this helps.
