Dates coming from web service


I'm currently trying to consume in VC a CAF Application Service exposed as a Web Service. I'm able to retrieve what I want but I have a problem with dates format.

The web service returns dates in the following format: YYYY-MM-DDTHH:NN:SS

When I test my data service in VC it works fine. When I run my iview, VC swap the month and the day and compute the new date...

It's not just a problem of formatting with DVAL and DSTR because the date is already computed.


Date returned from web service: 2007-09-21T00:00:01

Date returned from test data service in VC: 21.09.2007

Date returned at runtime: 09.09.2008

VC understand 21.09.2007 not like DD.MM.YYYY but like MM.DD.YYYY so 21.09.2007 becomes 09.09.2008

I also tried to check on the server Regional and Language option but it doesn't come from there.

Have you ever faced this problem?
