Exposure: Creative Program (based towards depth of field)

hi there

where i can correct the settings wich i see in the exif -> from "Exposure: Creative Program (based towards depth of field) " to "Exposure: Program (auto)" ?

some of my picure-series are on auto .. and others on creative .. but i don't understand the logic behind .. where is the switch?
.. sorry for this beginners-question .. ?

(i founded out when is on "Exposure Mode: Manual" the +- EV-correction is done ... okidoki)

exif-exampels with my problem you find here:

If your mode dial is set to automatic mode (green square), press the MENU button, go to Rec. mode 3, scroll down to Program Line and press the right four way button then select your preference.

To better control depth of field, Set the mode dial (on top of the camera) to P and use the rear e-dial to adjust your aperture.

Hope this helps.

i'm always on program-mode (P) + the rear-dial adjust the time (the front-dial the aperture), but why on the end exif says, that i selected "Creative Program (based towards depth of field)" .. it is normal? but why it change sometimes to the exif-information "Program (auto)" .. i'm always on P .. always!

i tried also this instruction for the auto-mode, but i don't found rec.mode 3:

Can anyone explain the difference between the "Auto" and the "Normal" program line?
