Date problem not resolved yet.

leave a comment »

Just had a mail from our systems administrators regarding the localisation settings on the server.  they’re all set to UK and the correct timezone so that’s not the cause of our inconsistent date interpretation problem.

To summarise whilst when entering dates they seem to be interpreted as UK format consistently when we try to use them in calculations they seem to be interpreted as US format unless they are not legal US format dates then they are interpreted as UK format.  So entering or selecting 11/07/2011 (11th July 2011) on the Newform.aspx page seems to work fine but in a calculation it will be interpreted as 7th November 2011 whilst 13/07/2011 will always be interpreted as 13th July 2011.  When we subtract one from the other we expect a 2 day difference but get 117 days difference.
