I have a couple of suggestions for you.

1. in IDT, format the Date Objects - Right click on the object and select Create display format.

2. in Webi the calendar picker date is managed by explicitly changing the preferences to the specified date and time format.

Once the calendar picker is selected the sql should diplay the correct format.

Hope that helps.
