MYOB depends on Windows for certain settings, for example the date format as well as the currency symbol.

To ensure that MYOB displays the format you need for your country, do the following:

Windows 7

Go to Windows Control Panel

In Windows 7, click on Clock, Language and Region

Windows 7 control panel

Windows 7 Region and Language settings

Windows 10

In Windows 10 Control Panel, click on Change date, time or number formats

In the Region screen, click on the Additional settings button at the bottom right.

In the Customize Screen, select the Currency tab, then key in the letters or symbol of your home currency.

Currency symbol – RM

You can put in your currency symbol here if you like, for example using ₱ for the Philippine Peso as shown in the image below.

Next, select the Date tab, and make changes to the way you wish to display your date in MYOB.

In Malaysia, use “dd/MM/yyyy” to display 2 digit day and month and 4 digit year in that order.

In countries like Philippines where dates are displayed with the month first, use “MM/dd/yyyy” instead.

Type in the format directly into the Short date field if you do not see the one you need in the list.

Finally, click Apply, then OK.

If you already have MYOB open while doing these settings, close it, then open again for the settings to take effect.
