SharePoint Tip: Common error when creating Project Web Database site

Thought I could share this one. I was creating a SharePoint 2010 Project Web database subsite and was faced with an error message "The formula contains a syntax error or is not supported."
After doing some research on technet, I found that my site collections regional settings Locale was set to "English (South Africa)" and apparently for the site database schema to be created, it required the regional settings to be "English (United States)", probably because the Database instance may have been set up this way, but anyway, after changing the regional settings to "English (United States)", site creation immediately worked.
