Matching your Browser and Office Regional Settings
Your regional settings for your Browser and Office installation must match to complete projects successfully
SIMnet users in different regions have different standard methods for inputting certain information like dates. SIMnet Projects are designed to be used with English (United States) or English (Canada) regional settings. It is very important that, whichever regional setting you use, your browser and your Office installation use the same setting. A number of users who have inadvertently set their browser and Office to use different regional settings have not been able to get certain steps on certain projects, especially in Excel and Access.
