excel (obdc to sql 2000) data type error

We open lots of sql 2000 views using excel 2003 office on our network. However on a couple of users they get the error

The conversion of a char datatype to a datetime data type resulted in an out of range value

they strange thing is on this specific user I logged in as admin and it returned the query in excel but then logged in as the user and got the above error!!!! didnt expect that.

I've just tried to open the spreadsheet on my laptop as well and excel installed the odbc driver and I get the error too.

Could it be the regional settings. Maybe for the user logged in, but possible also on the connection to SQL server.
