  • By using an English (en-NL) environment and an English localized Access on your development machine.

    There is imho no other reliable way.

    It not only affects queries. Also when you use a from reference bound to a control or use it in an assignment in code.

    When you're sure that only queries are affected: Then use an UPDATE query on MSysQueries to change the Expression column. But make a backup first.

  • Hi tekoko10,

    The suggestion given by the Stefan Hoffmann can only be the solution for this issue.

    you can use update query to change "Formuleren"  to " Forms".

  • Not necessarily.

    I had to reinstall Windows 10. An news app asked for my region. So I entered DE. Well, this started a complete transformation of Win10. It replaced any en based content, application or program link with a German version.

    It's one those new user friendly features, I guess.
