This issue applies to Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Reporting Services.
Consider the following scenario:
This issue occurs because of a change in the .NET Framework 4.0 that prevents the application and SSRS 2012 from using the correct information based on the regional settings of the operating system. Applications that are based on the .NET Framework 4.0 use regional settings that are returned by Windows. However, SSRS 2012 is built on the .NET Framework 3.5 Services Pack 1 (SP1). Therefore, SSRS 2012 uses the regional settings that are embedded in the .NET Framework 3.5 SP1.
When a SSRS 2012 server runs a report by using the "." symbol as a time separator, the DateTime type parameter is sent back to the client as a string. The Report Viewer control calls the DateTimeOffset.TryParse method to validate the string by using the ":" symbol as the time separator. Therefore, the string is validated as false and it is not displayed in the parameter prompt area.
Note This issue only occurs if the Long Time format is set to "HH:mm:ss", the default setting for Italian regional settings. The default setting for Italian regional settings depends on your operating system. Additionally, you can configure the default setting of your operating system by changing the Long Time format.
