Hi

 I created a report for my client. All was going well  till day light savings were applied.  Date shown on the form is  Todays date  but the date shown in the database  or report is  yesterdays  date

What I have done.

1. I checked the database and database is also stroring wrong dates
2. On  the form its  showing right date and time ( I am confused )
3. I have applied the hotfix  (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/948155)
4. My client is in australian time zone
5. When we write report do we need to take care of time zone  if yes how

Thanks

So the times are wrong in the CRM Database?
Showing correctly on the form, but wrong on the report?

And you applied the hotfix to server and all clients (Outlook)?
It says on the hotfix that "The installation of this hotfix does not correct existing data. Therefore, any date values and time values that occur in the standard portion of the year are adjusted by nn hours, where  nn is the user's time zone offset from GMT. To correct this, you must manually correct any date values and time values that are affected."

Was this existing data?

1. On the CRM form data  is perfect
 2.  In database "Createdon" is perfect  but other dates  have issues
3.  Report picks  data from the database so  what ever is in database  it picks up that  ( For mscrm  time zone do we need to put  some special formating )
4. All my clients  are on australian time zone
5. I have checked with new   record also  same issue
6.  Custom attribute new_  or old attribute like estimated cose  date  have same issue  only  Created on and modified on are stored perfectly.
7. I have also checked stored  procedures whcih  I can use .  but no luck

Thanks

I think you are likely best off with a Microsoft Ticket.  Because of the newness of the product and the hotfix, there is a good likelihood that it will not be charged.
