Hello @Paulyeo11 ,

Maybe the structure of your date can't change to the U.S. date.

You must right-click the date column and select Change Type -> Using Locale.

Then choose English (World).

Hi Zhen

Thank you vry much for your sharing , yes you are correct , i make a mistake to change the date to USA date , which is wrong . instead i should use UK date .

If this world all just using one standard date , i think it will be less problem , but that is not possible.
