Daylight Saving Time is Controlled Differently on UI for Report Date Fields (Doc ID 2172129.1)

Last updated on MARCH 08, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Argus Safety - Version 7.0.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

On the 'Report Details' window opened by clicking report icon on Case Form >> Regulatory Reports, Daylight Saving Time adjustment for displayed value is controlled differently for Date fields.

Daylight Saving Time adjustment is controlled by;
-- CONTROL_TABLE for 'Date Generated' and 'Data Submitted' fields
-- Client PC OS setting for 'Date Transmitted' field.

As the results, sometimes Date Transmitted is shown as before Date Generated, and sometimes Data Submitted is shown as before Date Transmitted.

1) Create a new case and schedule a report.
2) Set a sample date time value '02-JUN-2016 12:00:00' at DATE_GENERATED, DATE_SUBMITTED and DATE_XMIT columns of CMN_REG_REPORTS table for the report
by SQL.
3) Open Report Details for the report on Client PC with OS timezone of GMT+09:00:
