I need to display a date in uk format without the time portion. My report runs from a AS cube so cant use convert in SQL. I think you can set the language option for the whole report. Anyone know how.

Thanks,

Jules,

I think it's very simple to change the format of the date in Reporting services. High light the cell in reporting services, click the properties for Date field, Choose custom and put the format as dd/MM/yyyy and it worked for me in displaying the dates in UK format.

Working on SSRS, Issue faced with International data display in report.
I used =FormatDateTime(Parameters!StartDate.Value)
it will work in US as per date format "mm/dd/yyyy"
But how same date format will dsiplay for user like India or other countries?
how do set International Date format in SSRS.

There is a simpler way, by default reporting services are installed using English (United States) as the default date format adjust the Report properties language to English (United Kingdom)

On a slightly different note, in Business Intelligence Design Studio any date parameters seems to want input in MM/DD/YYYY format regardless of the language setting of the report. As my default dates are DD/MM/YYYY this means I have to tweak them everytime I run a report whilst testing it in BIDS.

Any ideas?

Thanks

Nilesh,

Please start new threads when asking additional questions. I almost answered the original poster when I saw that he had posted back in 2006 and his question was probably not relevant any more.

The is a persistent problem and an annoying one that is part of the "America is so big that others will just have to accept our defaults" issues. Others include the constant reversion of Outlook to an American spelling dictionary and printers mysteriously adopting "Letter" rather than A4 paper sizes, no matter how many times you tell them otherwise.

I get round this particular issue by always using three-letter month names rather than numbers for the months. This disambiguates the day/month problem, eg: Apr 9 07 is the same as 09 Apr 2007. This always seems to work for data input but the problem is training those pesky users. I use a system that forces them to use three-letter months and will not accept moth numbers so they get used to it in the end

Kind regards

Paul Smile
