Incorrect date in exported report XLS file name

Adam Lloyd shared this problem 6 months ago
Resolved

When exporting reports to the XLSX format, the date in the filename is the previous date. When the report is exported as a PDF or a CSV, the date in the filename is the current date. I've confirmed that the server time is correct.

It is expected that the date in the filename should always be the current date; why is yesterday's date being used for XLS reports? Is this fixed in newer versions?

Hi Bharath,

The defect itself is tied to this request, so you only need to reference this request #8972 to anyone in Yellowfin and they will be able to track the progress.

From what I can see, this issue was logged in 7.2, which is almost out of support, so our best way forward here it to ensure the issue has been (or will be) addressed in 7.3 + releases. I'm happy to test this out for you, and can get back to you with my results.


Please let me know if there was anything else you were after in the meantime.

Hi Guys,

After some further testing, I think I understand what is happening here.

Yellowfin is taking the users profile region into consideration when creating the file name.


E.g. Right not in Melbourne its 1pm on 30/10/2018

If I set my profile region to Melbourne, the filename has 30 Oct.

However if I switch my region to the States, my filename has a date of 29th. As it's currently 9pm on 29/10/2018.

Is there something I'm missing here? Maybe a different scenario where the above is not true?


Thanks,David
