    Date display in ARC2 after upgrade

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 18.01

    The date doesn't display correctly in ARC reports after our upgrade to ARC2. In all existing, converted or new reports when you try and format a date it appears back to front and with a / between different elements of the date whatever format you might have chosen. For example: Put a Loan Date in a new report and go to format data, and choose date as a category. If you choose the data format 'August, 19 2003' the date will then appear like this: '2003/August/19'. If you choose the format option in this style 'Tuesday, August 19, 2003' you get this: 'Tuesday, 2003/August/19'.

    There is new ARC repository available that should correct this problem. Please ask your local Ex Libris representative to put it on your ARC server in c8/deployment. Login to the Web portal as user administrator, click "Home", then "Tools", choose "Content Administration and run the "ARC_Repository" import (Run with Options).
