    Default use of comma

    I am using microsoft word type a date "January, 2001" the spell check option corrects this by eliminating the comma. Is this correct?
    thanks Ruth

    Re:
    • January, 2001

    You should have the comma between the month and the year, as above. However:
    • 21 January, 2001

    Using the day/month/year format, you do not need to have a comma between the day and the month.

    :)
