Why Doesn't Mathematica Recognize System Dates?

Hello everyone,

I've imported some tab-delimited data with dates in the format day/ 
month/year in one of the columns.  This is also the format I've  
specified for the short format in OS X.

When I import the data, Mathematica reverses the month and day when  
the day of the month is less than 13, so 5/2/2007 becomes {2007, 5,  
2}.  If the day of the month is 13 or higher, Mathematica can't  
handle it and leaves it, so 15/2/2007 stays as 15/2/2007.

Is there any preference setting in Mathematica that I can change to  
fix this?

Regards,

	Greg
