I need to solve makes the Notepad in Windows 7 deals with hyphen such as Notepad in Windows xp

#1
We are in Saudi Arabia and we use Arabic calendar.
We use database application and view date as text like that '25-09-1432'
In windows xp this text appear '25-09-1432' if you use left to right direction and appear '1432-09-25' if you use right to left direction
The problem in win 7 now this text appear '25-09-1432' even direction left to right or right to left; as you now in Arabic language the direction from right to left so we need this text appear like that '1432-09-25'.
Thank you for reading.
Notes
  1. You can test this problem in notepad application.
  2. When use underscore('_') instead thane hyphen('-') the text appear in a good way. But we need this text appear with hyphen.

I have no way to check for a solution to your problem, but I might suggest you open the Help and Support section. Search for date and option 2 may be a how to "Change the display of dates......". Perhaps something there might help.

Thank you Saltgrass
The problem is not with date, but the problem with digital text with a sign "-" (hyphen)
