Errors when Considering IGAM Applications when Using FIMS with IGAM

You may receive an error in the IGAM/FIMS Gateway Message Viewer similar to the following:
  • The month of a date must be from 1 to 12. (80)
  • Incompatible datatypes found during runtime conversion. (5729)
  • Unable to do run-time conversion of datatypes. (5678)
  • Unable to update RowObject Field. (142)
This can be caused by Windows Regional Date settings that are in place that override program date settings, so when using a regional setting such as Canadian English or Canadian French the errors can occur.

This can also occur if Progress was installed using a foreign date format.

To resolve do the following:

Windows Settings:

1. Changing the Regional settings in Control Panel > Region and Language to English (United States) may resolve these errors.

Check Progress settings:

2. Go to \npo\dlc
3. Find the startup.pf file
4. Edit the file in Notepad
5. Scroll to the bottom of the file
6. Find this section:  -d mdy
  • If the file reads -d dmy change it to -d mdy
7. Save the file
8. Test considering IGAM applications again and the errors should go away.
