1184459 - Date appears incorrectly using formula "=UserResponse("Enter Begin Date:")"


In BusinessObjects version 6.5, a WebIntelligence document contains a prompt for a date object. When the user enters the date in to the document, only the month, year and date are to be displayed. Perform the following steps to recreate the issue using the Islands Resort demo universe:

  1. Create a document using Resort and Revenue.
  2. Add a Query Filter with a prompt on Invoice Date: Invoice Date greater than ("Date?").
  3. Run the query. Type "1/14/2004" for the prompt.
  4. Go to Edit Report mode. Create the variable [UserRes] =UserResponse("Date?").
  5. Insert the variable into a Free Standing Blank Cell.

When the report runs, the date is displayed similar to "1/14/2004 12:00:00 AM".
