    the use of date in text

    When I am writing a date in the text of my document, should there be a comma before and after the year?

    An example: The information was listed in the December 30, 2009, document that was delivered to the customer.

    Thanks.

    Yes and No, depending on where you are. In the UK no comma is more generally used.

    I certainly would not put a comma after 2009, but I would put a comma after 30.
