Hi @Leviathan,

 

Change your system windows date format. If you are using windows 8 or above, go to settings and then 'change the date and time format'.

 

Change the short date format to dd-MMM-yy

 

If this helped you, please mark this post as an accepted solution and like to give KUDOS .

 

Regards,

Affan
