Having a weird problem with InfoPath browser based forms between two different environments (live and test).
On one environment, a date picker field when clicked shows a calendar in a SMTWTFS format. On the other environment it shows it in a MTWTFSS format. I can't figure out the difference. I want it to show Sunday as the first day. This is what I've tried looking at so far:
- The site collection that hosts the form has regional settings of English (UK) and the start day set to Sunday.
- Central Admin has regional settings of English (UK) and the start day set to Sunday.
- Everything on the server is set to English (UK).
- The ifirstdayofweek value in the registry is set to 6 (Sunday) thoughout the registry.
- If I download the xsn file onto my local machine, the format of the date picker control is English (UK).
Other date controls outside of Infopath are fine. Windows calendar shows as expected (with Sunday first). Other SharePoint calendars show correctly (and changes if I change Site Collection regional settings). Just this InfoPath date picker remains defiant - it stays on Monday no matter what.
One difference between the two servers is that one is 2007 SP2 with some security hotfixes and the other is 2007 SP3. Sadly I don't have remote desktop access to the other server so my trouble-shooting is limited.
Does anyone have any ideas on why the infopath calendar insists on showing Monday first?
Thanks in advance,

Thank you for your question.
I am trying to involve someone familiar with this topic to further look at this issue.

I have been doing some testing here in and find that when I set the format for the date picker control for English (UK) and publish it to a MOSS 2007 sp3 server the week starts with monday. If I change the format to English (US) it starts with sunday. This environment has all US based region settings so I don't believe those come in to play here. Now you did mention that the difference was between 2 different environments - one Test and one Live. Which one is the 2007 sp2 and which is the 2007 sp3? Also which one has the form that displays the week starting with monday and which displays starting with sunday? I am curious if one of the templates may indeed have the English (US) format rather than the (UK) format.
