Wrong date format JJJJ-MM-TT vs. TT.MM.JJJJ

Hello community.

We have upgraded our ERP from EHP3 to EHP7 (Base is 740 now).

So far everything seems to run quite well.

But we have on phenomen where we do not have a solution for right now. We already searched in the SCN and in the SAP Services but without any result.

We have an user in our order processing department with an unlogical date format. Sometimes when the user is openning a customer order in VA02 the date format looks this way: JJJJ-MM-TT.

This not the way we want it. Here is how it should look like: TT.MM.JJJJ

The problem ist that this does not happen all the time. Some time the user is opening the order and the date is correct.

Two minutes later the user is reopening the order and the date-format is wrong.

We already proofed

- country customizing

- GUI configuration

- SAP options

- user configuration

- user parameter

- authorizations

Does somebody know about a note for that problem?

Anybody facing the same problem?

Any ideas?

Thank you very much in advance.

    Hi Dominik

    is this behavior happening for only this specific user ?

    Or are other users ( performing exactly the same thing ) .. also facing this issue ? 

    Also is this happening in all systems ( recently upgraded ) for this user ID or any specific system

    If possible , create the user ID again copying it from someone else ..and see the problem persists.

    Thanks

    Rishi

      Hello everybody.

      As suggested from andrea montella

      we opened an ossnote and they had the correct answer for us.


      The error was in a Z_form (smart forms) based on YBAA_MMPO and others.

      The problem was SET_CONTRY in this coding

      *initializing fields for tax totals

      SELECT SINGLE land1 FROM lfa1 INTO h_land

      WHERE lifnr = is_ekko-lifnr.

      *

      SET COUNTRY h_land.

      *SET COUNTRY IS_EKKO-lands.

      H_land = 'DE'

      This is our new coding now:

      SELECT SINGLE land1 FROM lfa1 INTO h_land
      WHERE lifnr = is_ekko-lifnr.
      *
      if IS_EKKO-EBELN <> ' '.
      SET COUNTRY h_land.
      endif.
      *SET COUNTRY IS_EKKO-lands.


      Thanks everybody.

    HI Domink

    that looks really weird!

    did you see the same misbehaviour using same userid in a different computer?

    when you say reopen order, you mean he/she reopens same order in a different date format?

    are there any enhancement against va02?

    let me know

    More information might be helpful.

    Which database?
    Which operating system, of database server, and of SAP application servers?
    More than one SAP application server?
