Today I encountered an annoying bug. I needed to edit a previously scheduled report, but when I tried to edit the schedule I wasn’t able to complete the wizard. The error was:
"Cannot initialize report"
Value of ’01/01/0001 00:00:00′ is not valid for ‘Value’. ‘Value’ should be between ‘MinDate’ and ‘MaxDate’.
This turned out to be a localization issue. My SRS is ENU, while the client I was using the console on is in Italian (ITA). When the wizard tries to read the report parameters, in this case the time window, SRS returns the date in ENU format but the console expect it in ITA, hence the exception.
In this case you need to temporarily change the Region and language format on the client and turn it to ENU, launch the console and then reset it to Italian. The console reads the locale settings just on startup so it’s safe to revert it back.
Satya this one is for you :-).
