Environment

Novell GroupWise 7
Novell GroupWise WebAccess 7

Situation

Dates in WebAccess are shown in US format only - i.e. mm/dd/yy not dd/mm/yy
The "internationalization" templates in WebAccess do not take into account other date formats.

Resolution

Important!

Novell Technical Support will not support modified versions of GroupWise WebAccess. Web pages developed with this information
must be supported by those who develop them. Furthermore, Novell Technical Support does not assume responsibility for supporting HTML developers of GroupWise WebAccess. This information is provided AS IS.

1. Modify the properties files in the CSS template directory to reflect your date format:
sys:\tomcat\\webapps\gw\WEB-INF\classes\com\novell\webaccess\templates\css\CssResources_en.properties

NOTE!: There are also internationalized versions of the CssResources.properties files in this directory, identified by the naming convention CssResources_??.properties that may have to be modified.

NOTE!: When you install a GroupWise Support Pack, you may have to modify these files again.)
