SYMPTOMS

In Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Reporting Services, when you try to preview a report in Report Designer after you enter the input values for the report parameters, you may notice that the report parameters disappear or that the report parameters are unexpectedly converted to the English format, and the report may not render correctly.

This problem occurs when all the following conditions are true:
  • The report parameters are the Date/Time data type or the Float data type.
  • You create the report by using a non-English version of Report Designer like the German version of Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003.
  • The non-English version of Visual Studio .NET 2003 is installed on a computer that has an English version of Visual Studio .NET 2003 installed on it.
You may notice this behavior even after you set the Regional and Language Options on your computer that correspond to the non-English version of Visual Studio .NET 2003.
