Hi:
I cannot duplicate your problem. I just tried a Web Report against an information map, and all the date format choices worked in my report.

Web Report Studio only uses ODS for returning stored process results. So if your issue is with the format used in the stored process, then you might wish to talk to the stored process author. If you are building a report based on an information map and you find that your date format is not working with the data from the information map, then you might wish to talk to the information map designer.

If either of those people is unable to help you with your format question, then, your best bet for help is to contact SAS Tech Support.

Hi:
This is not an ODS or BASE Reporting procedure question. So we should not post to this forum anymore. If you have verified that the data item in the information map is:
1) numeric
and
2) has a SAS date format associated with it (such as DATE9. or MMDDYY10.) in the information map
and
3) that the data item is defined as a category item , not as a measure item

... then you've gone through all the right steps on the information map end. Your best bet for help is to contact SAS Tech Support.

Hi Cynthia,

Is there a separate forum for Information map studio? I could not find it. Please reply.

Thanks,
