Symptoms

In Oracle Financial Services Analytical Applications (OFSAA), when you run the Synchronize Instrument program, fn_Synchronize_Instrmts, you get an error on a dimension table in FSI_MESSAGE_LOG.  For example:

Starting Synchronize Instrument
Error Occured while inserting into dimension base table:DIM_CUSTOMER_B ORA-01843: not a valid month


If you un-comment the dbms_output statements in the related procedure, SYNCHRONIZE_INSTRUMENT, to get the insert statement, they get the following error:

INSERT INTO DIM_CUSTOMER_B(CUSTOMER_ID,CUSTOMER_DISPLAY_CODE,LEAF_ONLY_FLAG,ENABLED_FLAG,DEFINITION_LANGUAGE,CREATED_BY,CREATION_DATE,LAST_MODIFIED_BY,LAST_MODIFIED_DATE) VALUES (9200428,9200428,'Y','Y','US','SYSADMN',08.12.2014,'SYSADMN',08.12.2014)
Error Occured while inserting into dimension base table:DIM_CUSTOMER_B ORA-00917: missing comma


The error prevents values from the dimension column in the instrument tables from getting created in Dimension Management.
