FileMaker Language Settings

How do you change the language setting in FileMaker? Functions like MonthName() are outputting in French and we want them to output in English. (FileMaker database originated on a French computer but is now being hosted remotely)

Did that work, cg1? If it didn't, I can find out the answer for you.

Check the index language for the field. Define field>>options>>storage options - If this is set to French change it to english.

If this does not work, save a clone of the file on your local machine and import your records into the clone. The clone will take on the default settings of your system.
