Anonymous:Which one is correct? Any other way in writing the date?
September 22, 2006
September 22nd, 2006
22nd September 2006
Thank you for your help.
22 September 2006 or 22nd September 2006
September 22, 2006
In business letters
22 September 2006 or 22nd September 2006 or September 22 2006 (without comma)
I've never seen this one tho': September 22 2006 (without comma)
That would look rather strange.
Personally, I prefer to always use the ISO 8601 standard and write YYYY-MM-DD.

It's from Office English
Marvin A.Personally, I prefer to always use the ISO 8601 standard and write YYYY-MM-DD.I like a day-month-year sequence.
From Oxford handbook of Commercial Correspondence:
The month in the date should not be written in figures as this can be confusing; for example 11.3.03 means 11 March 2003 in British English, where the sequence is day-month-year, but 3 November 2003 in AmE, where the sequence is month-day-year.
It's acceptable to write the date with or without the abbreiations -th and -nd, e.g. 24th October or 24 October, and the transponse the date and the month, e.g. October 24 or 24 October. These are matters of personal preference, but whatever you choose you should be consistent throughout your correspondence.
DominikI too don't agree to the lack of comma and I don't see it in my business.Marvin A.I've never seen this one tho': September 22 2006 (without comma) That would look rather strange.
There are two essential ways of writing the date:
11 February 200_ (British style)
February 11, 200_ (American style)
There are many ways of writing the date so it's up to you which way you choose. So you can place a coma if you like but you should be consistent throughout your correspondence.
