I have a Birt report that makes dates calculations depending on a escalar parameter that the user chooses.
The problem: the date appears as in USA timezone, so the 1st of June 2016 appears as the 6th of January 2016.
That is the only problem, because all the calculations are correct, later on. In the scalar parameter, I have set up the way it should display, but the screen does show a very different format, I really don't know what to do,
Could you please help me? When I send my reports to production, I only send the rptdesign file, so it is in this file that I should be able to fix the issue. I cannot ask to change the timezone of the server either.
Here is the code of the scalar parameter:
<scalar-parameter name="init_date" id="3318">
this is how the date 01/06/2016 displays in the screen where you choose the value of the parameter Jan 6, 2016
Thanks for all your help and support.
