I am getting a vadidation message on refresh of a query on entering European date format in the selection criteria "Please enter value in permitted format for variable XXXX"

I need date to accept all date formats for variables to execute query.

Currently US date format has been accomodated, On entering European date format i get the above validation message.

Please suggest how do i supress this validation message or any other thoughts on the same.

If anyone experienced the same before or applied any notes plz send the SAP Note number for the same. I am currently on BW 3.5.

why dont you control the date display through the user creation / user details option - then your date entries should sort themselves out.
