I have created a simple report which does not access any database or even display anything for that matter.

I just have a parameter which is a date.

When I run the report I therefore end-up with a little calendar at the top of the page.

When I select a date, in the textbox the correct format is displayed. Unfortunately when I click on the "View Report" button I get an error message.

This only happens when I select a date with a day greater than 12.

Does that make sense?

I work in the Uk and my machine is set-up as such but I have read that you can change the locale in the report itself.

My problem is that I cannot find any properties in SSRS that says "Language" apart from a field.

Please help!!!

On the Report you can set the Language Property which is in the Localization section. You will place the language code like en-GB in this property. You can also do this at the field level too if you want. This should pick-up on your Regional and Language settings on your PC. If you want to override this or control this then you can simply set the report property accordingly.

If you set this property and then view the code of the report (RDL) you will see this towards the very bottom:


This information will be used for currency, date, and numeric conversions.
