I get the following error when I pass a date parameter '1998-01-01' to a report (Crystal Reports)from VB - the report runs off a stored procedure in sybase  ..... runs fine in the sybase environment.  
"ODBC error:[Sybase][ODBC Driver]An invalid ibScale value was specified"

Go into the Crystal Reports design mode. Select File/Options and then Fields tab. There is an option to set the date format to YMD.

Avoid any date format error with CRW using the
Date (yyyy,mm,dd)  function.

Ex

Report1.SelectionFormula = "Date(Year({SALES.date}),
Month({SALES.date}),
Day({SALES.date})) = " & Format (date, "yyyy,mm,dd")
