BusinessObjects date error resolved; reapply fix to impacted reports

ITS has resolved the problem that caused some BusinessObjects WebI users to get the "ORA-1843: Not a valid month" error when running reports that contain a date prompt. If you had the ITS Service Center apply a fix to your reports that were displaying the error (or fixed them yourself), you will need to reapply the fix described in these instructions or ask the Service Center to do it. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Follow-up on BusinessObjects Web Intelligence (WebI) Update

ITS successfully applied an update to BusinessObjects Web Intelligence (WebI) on April 14. The update allows users to run BusinessObjects in Internet Explorer 9.

This new version retains all the functionality of the current version and supports Internet Explorer 6, 7, 8, and 9; Firefox 8; and Safari 5.

Since the update, some users are getting the "ORA-1843: Not a valid month" error when running reports that contain a date prompt. ITS is working with the vendor to find a solution. In the meantime, if you have a report with this error that you need today, please contact the ITS Service Center or refer to these instructions to fix the problem yourself.
