    Update 19D Bug Fix: Incorrect Requested Delivery Date displayed in Requisition PDF now fixed

    Support / Customers

    Here is some pertinent detail that I thought would be useful to share on a bug fix in 19D relating to display of Requested Delivery Date incongruence between the value in the Requisition itself and what gets displayed in the PDF that is attached to the Approval Notification

    Problem:

    The PDF attached to the requisition approval emails shows different delivery date as the date shown on the requisition line in Requisition UI.

    In UI we have = 27-06-19
    In REQ PDF= 17-06-27

    Why?

    The issue is generated by User preferences setup . Customer has Date format set as = dd-MM-yy.
    In this case when PDF is generated it seems that RTF template is not able to format the date attribute correctly in the PDF.

    Symptom:

    If we change the Date format to M-d-yy then the REQ PDF it shows the right date. The Requisition PDF Template does not use formatted date and number configured in User preferences.

    What was fixed:

    The seeded template was fixed by editing the property for 'NeedByDate' field as "<?FormattedNeedByDate?>"
