I have a MS Word .doc document and it has a DATE field. I have a not English location on my computer and when I open the document then I see the DATE field in English formatting, and this is correct. But the other guy sees it in other language, which is incorrect. How can I fix it? I've tried adding \l key, but that didn't help.
