Bug: #50001284 (SQL Hotfix)
Microsoft distributes Microsoft SQL Server 2005 fixes as one downloadable file. Because the fixes are cumulative, each new release contains all the hotfixes and all the security fixes that were included with the previous SQL Server 2005 fix release.

Symptoms

Consider the following scenario.
  • You create a report of Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services with Service Pack 2 (SP2). The report contains a report parameter whose data type is DateTime.
  • You deploy the report to a report server.
  • On the server that runs the report server, you select German locale under Standards and formats in the Regional and Language Options item in Control Panel.
  • In the Internet Options item in Control Panel, you specify German to be the language that Internet Explorer uses to display content in Web pages.
  • You open the report from the URL of the virtual directory of the report server.
  • In the report, you select a date by using the Datetimepicker control.

In this scenario, the date appears in the mm/dd/yyyy format in the Datetimepicker control. However, you expect that the date appears in the dd.mm.yyyy format.

Note By default, the mm/dd/yyyy format is used for the English (United States) locale. The dd.mm.yyyy format is used for the German locale.

This problem does not occur in the versions of SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services that are earlier than SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services SP2.

Note Because the builds are cumulative, each new fix release contains all the hotfixes and all the security fixes that were included with the previous SQL Server 2005 fix release.

Microsoft SQL Server 2005 hotfixes are created for specific SQL Server service packs. You must apply a SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 2 hotfix to an installation of SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 2. By default, any hotfix that is provided in a SQL Server service pack is included in the next SQL Server service pack.

Status

Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
