Patch level detected:Dollar Universe 6.1.00
Product Version: Dollar.Universe 6.1.0

Description :export U_FMT_DATE=dd/mm/yyyy (all Unix)
or
set U_FMT_DATE=dd/mm/yyyy (Windows)

does not change the variable U_FMT_DATE in a shell (after setting the DUAS environment). The variable is mostly not available in the environment (set or env) except for Linux.
Inside a Uproc the variable is always available.

As a consequence scripts with for example
uxlst ctl BEFORE=(31/12/2013,0000)
do not work any more
Environment:
OS: All
Cause:
Cause type:
By design
Root Cause: This is the expected behaviour. As configuration in v6 is no longer managed through environment variables but with node settings.
Resolution:
Change the U_FMT_DATE variable value in the node settings of the node via the Univiewer Console.

Fix Status: No Fix
