Default ISO Date Problem

Hi All,

I'm hoping someone can help me with an odd problem that has just appeared on my dev client system - Query Analyser, EM and ADO have all stopped recognising 'yyyy-mm-dd' as a valid date format! 'yyyymmdd' works fine, as does 'yyy-MMM-dd'.

Does anyone know if there is some kind of swicth/option that might have been flipped to cause this? It's definately client related, the same queries run fine on my colleague's machine

One possible cause is the setting of the DATEFORMAT to ydm. Try putting the date format back to YMD and your problem should go away:
