Issue/Introduction

Mixed results are occurring when publishing in batch mode and attempting to send cdate via XML tags.  Some of the dates work and others do not.  The ones that do not are all changed to internal TDM applications references of 01/01/1900 instead of the passed in values.  Why?

Cause

Invalid date caused this issue.

Environment

TDM 3.5 and above

Resolution

Upon close inspection of each script, the error was a User Error.  During our XML modification process, we reversed the month and day tags. When GTDatamaker received a month above '12', it changed the date to the 01/01/1900 to indicate an invalid date. After correcting the XML coding error, all of the references to CDATE are working as expected now.
