After upgrade of CA Common Services, the CA Earl report titles show date format of dd/mm/yy instead of mm/dd/yy. How can I change this?


The CA Earl report title date format is controlled by the DATE= option in the EARLOPT module, EARLGEN macro. The default is DATE=DDMMYY which results in dd/mm/yy in the report title.

To reassemble the EARLOPTS with your desired date format mm/dd/yy:

  • For CA Common Services Version 12.0 and above,

    modify SAMPJCL member AXEI0040, change to DATE=MMDDYY and run.

  • For CA Common Services Version 11.0,

    modify SAMPJCL member XE61USR1, change to DATE=MMDDYY and run.
