FIX: Date Filter on Request page showing error 'specifying that the date cannot be evaluated as a filter' when using Zetadocs Server Delivery

Print

ZTN4496

This Zetadocs technical note applies to:

  • Zetadocs for NAV version 8 or later.
  • Microsoft Dynamic NAV 2016 with cumulative update 17 or later (except US systems)
  • Microsoft Dynamic NAV 2017 with cumulative update 4 or later (except US systems)

Symptom

When using a date filter with Zetadocs Server Delivery, an error is displayed, specifying that the date cannot be evaluated as a filter.

Cause

From the cumulative updates 4 for NAV 2017 and 17 for NAV 2016, Microsoft Dynamics NAV stores the requests filters as culture invariant, breaking the existing Zetadocs for NAV logic.

Resolution

This fault was corrected in an update, which is available here.

Status

This behaviour was corrected in the update detailed above.

Last updated: 25th September 2017 (CR/NT)
