Post Author: Robert

CA Forum: General

Hey Guys, I am experiencing some issues with Crystal Reports Developer XI (SP4) and Oracle Dates. Situation:I have a view setup in oracle database, i use this view to base my reports. Within the view there is a logtime column (to_date(logtime,'DD-MM-YYYY') & to_date(logtime,'DD-MON-YYYY') -: i have used both) When i connect to the database the database expert (view on the left of the screen) displays the logtime column as date time, but when i go to refersh the report with data with the logtime as group 1, i get a whole lot of errors:1: Failed to Retrieve data from Database2: Failed to Retrieve data from Database Details: ORA-01861: Literal does not match format String Database vendor code: 18613: Failed to Retrieve data from Database Details: Failed to execute SQL statement. OCI Call................................... Anybody got any ideas why this is happening, if i use the to_char the report work fine...well it will not sort by date!! Any help, most appreciated....
