Hi All,

I use MS Dynamics POS 2009 as my till and stock control system. I am having problems running reports.

When I try to run any report I get the error message in the attached picture.

I have lots or warnings on the till:

Event Category:      None
Event ID:      0

Time:            14:17:13
User:            N/A
Computer:      CIT-MGAR-TILL01

Let me know if you have any info. It is a great system but I have never been able to run reports.

Cheers,

It is possible your supplier has used regional specific programming, and your POS machine is not set up the same way.  Check with your supplier.

Agreed with cyberwiki.
You can change the format using SET DATEFORMAT SQL command. For example
set dateformat dmy
set dateformat mdy
