  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When using an excel combo box to create a dropdown for data
    generated using the NOW() function in excel, java errors are
    thrown in the combobox in tm1web instead of showing the dates.
    
    The errors are along the lines of the following:
    
    java.util.gregoriancalendar[....]
    

Local fix

  • Use static values for dates rather than the NOW() function
