The date actually appears in this format : "month/day/year", and i'd like it to appear in the format "day/month/year". How is it possible ? Thanks
In Settings/Translations/Languages, you can change the date format for the language you use.
But you have to give technical features access to your admin user to see this menu.
in OpenERP backend:
settings -> translations -> languages -> choose your language to edit -> edit -> Date Format field
I was also stuck with this. Changing the date format in the Settings/Translations/Languages seemed to have no effect (I even changed both the en_US and en_UK settings). Then I realised I hadn't changed the language setting in my own user preferences (top right hand corner -- User/Preferences/Lanuage). Select the language which you have changed the date format for and save.
This may not be the source of your problem but it may help someone else.
