Date Parameters and List of Values (error message date format cannot be nul

I'm new to BI Publisher. I began with a simple report that has 4 parameters. The parameters are center code, sales date, customer number, and job number. I am trying to create a list of values on my customer number based on the center code and sales date entered by the user. My query for my LOV is:
select customer_nbr
from ticket
where center_cd = :center
and trunc(trans_date) = :salesDate
salesDate is defined as a date parameter with a format of MM-dd-yy. It's default value is 04-10-07.
When I attempt to view my report after adding the LOV, I receive the error:
Date format can not be null.
What am I doing wrong? Also, I would like the salesDate to default to the current date. I have tried using sysdate as the default value. This isn't working. The salesDate defualts to null when it is set to sysdate.

"Date - allows the user to enter a date as a parameter. Note that the data type must also be "Date" and the format must be Java date format."

  • With my new macbook I attempted to open an older spreadsheet and get the following error message:  "This spreadsheet cannot be opened because ti is too old.  To open it, save it with numbers '09 first"  So how does one do this when I only have ver3.1?

    With my new macbook I attempted to open an older spreadsheet and get the following error message:  "This spreadsheet cannot be opened because ti is too old.  To open it, save it with numbers '09 first"  So how does one do this when I only have ver3.1?

    Numbers 3.x can only open Numbers '09 and later.  You will need Numbers '09 to open Numbers '08 files.
    If it is a single file (or only a few) you can email me and I will open and convert then email back.  My email address is in the "Biography" of my profile.
    You may have Numbers '09 installed.  Look in the folder "/Applications/iWork '09"  if Numbers is in that folder launch it, open the file you tried to open, and save.  Then you should be able to open in Numbers 3.x

  • How to create parameters and list of values in BI Publisher

    Hello friends,
    I'm Using BI Publisher 10.1.3. I tried creating a report based on a column's data for ex: dept_no
    in the data model i specified the table name to select all columns
    I created the list of values taken as type-sql query. in the query I've written select dept_no from dept
    In the parameters section i gave it as integer and default value as * parameter type as menu then i selected the list of value name that i previously specified..
    now the problem is when I run the report I get all the data inspite of selecting the parameter from which I need that particular deptno's data
    What could be the reason
    pls let me know
    Thanks and Regards

    In your main data model query, have you used this parameter to limit the data to the selected department?
    Eg. select dept_name from depts where dept_no = :p_dept
    where :p_dept is your parameter..

  • HT1923 I am trying to remove iTunes 10.2 and I get an error message stating it cannot be removed because it is corrupt.  How can I remove iTunes?

  • FF downloaded some update and now I get error message saying update cannot be installed until I get rid of extra FF copies on computer-but I DON"T have any extra copies. I cannot even uninstall the only FF I now have!

    I have a Toshiba laptop, Windows & Home Premium Edition operating system. I had FF 3.6.3 installed and up until 6:00 today it was sort of working properly. I find out later that my huasband cannot even open the browser, as every time he does, a dialog box opens up whcih says "UPdate cannot be installed. Please make sure no other copies of FF are running on computer, then restart FF to try again." But I do not have any other copies of FF. I really do not like it when FF auto installs stuff without my permission. Many times this stuff is downloaded and installed, only to raise havoc with my computer.

  • In order to update some of my apps I enter my apple ID and password and I get an error message that I cannot connect with itunes

    Why can I not connect to iTunes when I try to update apps?

    In my experience, this reflects a network problem -- i.e. your internet connection is somehow intermittent.
    Sometimes rebooting the device can help.

  • TS3694 Please how do I handle this. I downloaded a higher version of my Iphone 3 but during the installation it always hangs and show an error message that it cannot be downloaded with code1015.

    Please how do I handle this?
    I downloaded a higher version of my Iphone 3 but during the installation it always hangs and show an unknown error message that it cannot be downloaded and the code of the message 1015.

    This is usually a result of the iPhone being hacked with the cutsie term for that "jailbroken".
    Error 1015: This error is typically caused by attempts to downgrade the iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch's software. This can occur when you attempt to restore using an older .ipsw file. Downgrading to a previous version is not supported. To resolve this issue, attempt to restore with the latest iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch software available from Apple. This error can also occur when an unauthorized modification of the iOS has occurred and you are now trying to restore to an authorized, default state.

  • I'm trying to add a new domain and I'm getting error message.

    I'm trying to add my new domain name and I'm getting error message that says: 'Cannot add domain because this domain already exists. Please delete the domain and I already deleted it along with all the 'A Records', 'CNAME Records (Alias)', MX Records',  and 'Advanced DNS Records'. I have a ton of new fans coming to the site tonight. Help!!!

    Did you ever setup another trial BC site before and attach that domain name?  I'm pretty sure that if the domain name is attached to BC's nameservers already even if it's under another account then it won't work.  Not 100% sure about it but it's a likely culprit.  Try to type the subdomain you are adding into a browser and add "/admin" and see if you can login to BC-- if it's an old site you had setup then you should remove the subdomain from that account first and then try to add it to your newer BC site.

  • HT3275 My time machine does not back up and giving me this error message: The backup disk image "/Volumes/Data-1/Amiel's MacBook Pro.sparsebundle" is already in use. Pls help.

    My time machine does not back up and giving me this error message: The backup disk image “/Volumes/Data-1/Amiel’s MacBook Pro.sparsebundle” is already in use. Pls help.

    Make sure that there are no other Macs backing up at the present time.
    Pull the power cord from the back of the Time Capsule
    Count to ten
    Plug the power cord back in
    This will "fix" things about 98% of the time. Post back if you are in the unlucky 2% category.

  • Help I upgraded to 6 OS and everything was working ok until yesterday and now it is giving me error message that I cannot connect to iTunes. I tried the reset thing and changing the date but still not working.

    Help I have an iPad 2 and recently had to upgrade to 6 OS. All was well until yesterday when I received N error message that I cannot connect to iTunes.  I tried the reset and changing the date and neither worked. Does anyone have another solution that works?  I see others are having the same problem.

    Saw this on another post.
    Applecare Senior Advisor Txx Bxxx (I have his contact info in an email he just sent) just confirmed with me that the problem people are having with the App Store not loading is an apple issue with there servers, ITS NOT YOUR IPAD so don't go restoring it!   It's not happening to everyone however but they are looking into it, its really hit or miss.

    Try this first - Reset the iPad by holding down on the sleep and home buttons at the same time for about 10-15 seconds until the Apple Logo appears - ignore the red slider - let go of the buttons.
    This works for some users. Not sure why.
    Go to Settings>General>Date and Time> Set Automatically>Off. Set the date ahead by about a year.Then see if you can connect to the store.

  • I have an Airport Extreme as my wifi hub and an Airport Express to beam music. All of a sudden the Express stopped working and I get the error message "this version of Airport Utility does not support this base station".  All my software is up to date and

    I have a WiFi system in the house that uses the Airport Extreme for a hub and an older Express for sending music from my Mac to my sound system. Everything worked great till yesterday. When I go to Networks I see the Extreme and I see the Express but the Express is no longer connected and I get an error message "this version of AirPort Utility doesn't support this base station".  Any ideas?

    This sounds as if you have an older AirPort Express that is no longer supported by the newer Mavericks operating system.
    To check and see if  that might be the case, locate the model number on the side of the AirPort Express. It will start with an "A" followed by four numbers. Hard to see in the faint you may need reading glasses or a magnifying class to see the model number clearly.
    Model numbers A1084 and A1088 of the AirPort Express are no longer supported by AirPort Utility in Mavericks.
    You will need to use a Mac running Leopard, Snow Leopard, or a PC to be able to administer the older AirPort Express.

  • Need help restoring an itouch that erased itself and now gives an error message

    I have an ipod touch and was syncing it when it seems to have completely erased itself. Before that I had it in my purse and it had a weird yellow and white screen with no words. I turned it off and back on and it seemed fine. Anyway after that i synced it erased itself. It went back to the screen with the itunes symbol and the ubs cord, like when it is new and you need to initialize it. When I did that, it said I needed to restore, when I hit restore it went through as if it was fine, but then in the end it gives me an error message saying it cannot restore, the error message is 1611. What else can I do to get this working?

    Error 1611: This error may indicate a hardware issue with your device. Follow the steps in this article. Alsoattempt to restore while connected with a known-good 30-pin Dock Connector cable, computer, and network to isolate this issue to the device. The MAC address being missing or the IMEI being the default value (00 499901 064000 0) can also confirm a hardware issue. Out-of-date or incorrectly configured proxy or security software, such as FoxyProxy, can cause error 1611. To troubleshoot third-party security software, follow these steps.

    Thanks in advance

    When you send the messages from RWB-->Component Monitoring ->Integration Engine>test message, runtime parameters like Sender System, Receiver system, Adapter specific message attributes won't carry any values. If you are using any of these paramters in the mapping step,, the mapping will fail.
    I think in your case, RFC look up would have been configured based on Sender Business system/Service. but when you send message from RWB, the value for this field is empty. So that is why it is failing  as the message cannot find the business system and communication channel.
    If you use the sender file name, server name or any other parameters in the message mapping, then message will fail in the message mapping step. That is the major set back in RWB-->Test message.
    1)We post messages directly into pipeline step message mapping.
    2)The previous pipeline steps are ignored when post messages from RWB such as Receiver determination, routing etc
    3)Receiver determination step is responsible to send Sender/Receiver values into the mapping step.
    Hope i have clarified your questions
