CREPORTDATE

The CREPORTDATE formula is used to show a date picker on your published report that is independent of a cube data point.

Important Note:  The setup of Windows on your CALUMO Server can dictate the default date format that this formula uses to write back in Published Reports. If you notice your values being written back in a different format, have your I.T. Department investigate the following registry key on your CALUMO Server.

HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\International\sShortDate (Set this to your desired format, e.g. dd/MM/yyyy)

Usage Scenarios
