Issue/Introduction

Mixed results are occurring when publishing in batch mode and attempting to send CDATE via XML tags.  Some 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 values.  Why?

Cause

An invalid date caused this issue. Upon close inspection of each script, the error was due to a user error.  During the XML modification process, the month and day tags were reversed. When GTDatamaker received a month above '12', it changed the date to the 01/01/1900 to indicate an invalid date. 

Environment

TDM 3.5 and above

Resolution

After correcting the XML coding error, all the references to CDATE are working as expected.
