Date/time display in Audit Log is garbage - Sterling Gentran:Server for Microsoft Windows

Technote (troubleshooting)


The date/time display in the Audit Log is garbage


This has been identified as a code fix - APAR IC92525

Diagnosing the problem

The problem with the time display occurs when the time string does not match the settings for the System Locale.  For example, if the Regional and Language Settings are German, but the Locale is English.  The Windows OLE library defaults the Local ID to the Locale of the User.  However, the value of the string in the result set is different, because of the Regional Setting.  This mismatch, system configuration compared to current user configuration is what causes the date format function to fail, which causes the date field to contain garbage

Resolving the problem

No workaround is possible

A fix will be released in a future patch
