Date attributes should take their formatting from the culture setting in tps.config, so I imagine this is to do with report templates only? If so, then this is Problem 5897, which I see you have raised a case for since starting this thread.
Yep sounds like it too
I'm seeing this on just one analyst's webdesk in Chrome and IE. The Webdesk preferences are set to UTC and the local settings are uk with the correct date format. The tps.config is set to en-GB so I've run out of ideas now.
Jason, if you're looking at this on 7.7.2 (which I have a feeling you might be!) then this behaviour has changed quite a bit since this question was first asked. A bug was fixed for date formats in report templates plus the way the culture in general is decided has changed significantly - Take a look at the New Features guide in the section "Update for multilingual systems".
I was setting the time zone and thinking that would affect the culture as well. Changed the actual culture setting now and all's well
Try this article. It's a SQL script to change the culture to en-US, then you have to go through each user and change them to en-US (in a SQL script, don't worry).
so it's a 2 step thing, so it makes sense that if you had run a fix like this, you might still have your import defaulting to en-GB.
I know mine was before I ran this, but I also didn't have en-US as an option when editing a user.
