Date format problems!

We have a problem displaying dates with a ASP page. Instead of
displaying the correct year it displays the date like '21/03/aaaa'.

Our regional settings is Spanish and we use W2K. To solve this we must
edit the registry and change the shortdate format to 'dd/mm/yyyy'.

The regional setting in the control panel is set to 'dd/mm/aaaa'.

Is this a W2K bug?

TIA.

    try :
    do once(in global.asa or default.asp)
    session.lcid = 1034

    the use formatdatetime-function:


    Returns an expression formatted as a date or time.

    FormatDateTime(Date[, NamedFormat])
    Arguments
    Date
    Required. Date expression to be formatted.
    NamedFormat
    Optional. Numeric value that indicates the date/time format used. If omitted, vbGeneralDate is used.
    Settings
    The NamedFormat argument has the following settings:

    Constant Value Description
    vbGeneralDate 0 Display a date and/or time. If there is a date part, display it as a short date. If there is a time part, display it as a long time. If present, both parts are displayed.
    vbLongDate 1 Display a date using the long date format specified in your computer's regional settings.
    vbShortDate 2 Display a date using the short date format specified in your computer's regional settings.
    vbLongTime 3 Display a time using the time format specified in your computer's regional settings.
    vbShortTime 4 Display a time using the 24-hour format (hh:mm).

    Remarks
    The following example uses the FormatDateTime function to format the expression as a long date and assign it to MyDateTime:

    Function GetCurrentDate
    ' FormatDateTime formats Date in long date.
    GetCurrentDate = FormatDateTime(Date, 1)
    End Function
