I have always found the convention MMDDYY to be more confusing.
I've used the format YYMMDD for dates and files, as Lexipixel, starting as far back as the 1980s, so it's going to be difficult for me to change. hehe
For the shippers in the store, our system converted the dates in DDMonthNameYYYY
By the time ten years has gone by the old files are archived, so there's little confusion, and are archived for posterity.
That format really makes finding files easy, and, as long as the team know the format, it's hard to confuse.
