    English edition.

    The language version of the non-Unicode programs is set to an East Asian language.

    There is no option to sort by pronunciation. Is there anything I need to set or install?

    thanks!

    If I choose an East Asian format, the sort tab would show up. However, the month/day-of-week will use the localized language.

    How can I make it English?

    Thanks!

    WOULD YOU please have a careful read of all I sent you and then come back and tell me EXACTLY what you want to do.
    I thought you wanted to change the language to (English) for example.

    The link you sent worked fine when a proper language is chosen, except one thing: I want the date in English (e.g. Tuesday)

    Sorry Bit busy here.
    I have never had to change the non unicode language although I had seen the database for doing so.
    Which date is it now
    I presume you are not talking about the normal windows clock time.

    Yes, the clock. If the taskbar is on the left, you can see the full date. Also, this is used in program such as Outlook for date display. The difference is the localized name for day of week and month.

    OK. It looks like I can't force the day/month to use a different language from main choice in regional/language setting.

    You can, but you will have to download the program for the installation of different languages.
    Sorry cannot help further too busy with a thread on more severe problems, like cannot load windows in any form.
    I suggest you Google it.
