Error starting the report generation

Dec 10, 2010 at 11:14 AM


I've got an error when I try to generate a report.

In english (because the message is in french), it is something like "A cast error from datatype CHAR to DATETIME" has given a value out of limits of date and time. The instruction has been stopped".

Could you help me please ?

I got a similar issue when trying to generate the BizTalk Orchestration Profiler report. The error message was "conversion failed when converting string to datetime ...".

Looking at the datetime fields in the Orchestration Profiler UI, I noticed that the dates were being displayed in French format.

Changing my regional settings to "US" helped me solved the problem.

I guess that the Orchestration Profiler does not take into account the machine's culture while formatting dates. Hope that this bug will be corrected in a future version.
