Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Reporting tab;
  2. Open some online report with date columns;
  3. Click on generate;
  4. While opening the report a small window called "Parameter" will be shown with date format mm/dd/yyyy.


The format date (MM/DD/YYYY) showing in "Parameter" windows after building an online report and clicking on "Generate" is hardcoded and cannot be changed.
