When I save this document and use it to merge with other records in CRM, it will show as "22 March 2017"

How can I get this date to be published as Dutch?

Some ideas displaying my ignorance:

  1. With the field code displayed, select the field and change the proofing language to Dutch.
  2. Is the fieldname CreateDate, itself, different in Dutch?
  3. Would a \CharFormat switch make any difference?
  4. What happens if you switch to a Date field? Any difference?

I know nothing about the effect of language on fields so am simply speculating. I am a typical American as far as language skills go.

One thing I found is that you have to update the field after you change the proofing language.

I checked and the proofing language for the field (not the document, the field) matters. Proofing language is not a system or document setting, it is applied to individual characters.
