Regional Settings Schema

Windows SharePoint Services 3

This content is outdated and is no longer being maintained. It is provided as a courtesy for individuals who are still using these technologies. This page may contain URLs that were valid when originally published, but now link to sites or pages that no longer exist.

The Regional Settings schema is used to define the time zones, locales, languages, and currencies implemented within a Windows SharePoint Services deployment. This schema is expressed primarily through two files located in the setup directory, RGNLSTNG.XML (\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\TEMPLATE\1033\XML) and TIMEZONE.XML (\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\CONFIG).

You can access or modify regional settings through various members of the following classes in the Microsoft.SharePoint namespace:

SPRegionalSettings

SPTimeZone

SPTimeZoneCollection

SPTimeZoneInformation
