Dear helpful types,

I am currently plagued by the single most annoying error message known to man. It is the following:

DAX ERROR
'29.03.2005' is not a valid date

It appears in a little pop up box with alarming regularity.

Please advise me before I bite my own lips off in frustration.

Thank you very much indeed.

Sounds silly, but try inputing 03/29/2005 (in mm-dd-yyyy instead).

Hi Darth Ash,

Thanks for your reply.

Not sure where you mean I should change the date format - the windows date/time is a calender, so you can't have different formats. did you mean change it elsewhere?

U mean to say Windows gives the error, it could be some application running in the background that might be causing it.
Anyways, to change the date format. Go to Control Panel->Regional and Language Options.
Make Sure its on the Regional Options Tab.
Click on the Customize button. Click on the Date tab, in the newly opened window.
