    PROBLEM:

    When running a job through Control-M for SAP, the data in the Output displays the date in DD/MM/YYYY format. However when logged in as the same user in SAP, the SM37 transaction shows the date in MM//DD/YYYY format.


    CAUSE:

    CTM-3363 - (SAP) - In the job's output, the log dates format is not the same as the user's


    SOLUTION:

    The SAP API, BAPI_XBP_JOB_JOBLOG_READ does return a date object which can be formatted in any date format, however it does not return the system's date format, which acocunts for the difference in the job Output.

    Defect CTM-3363 has been assigned to this issue and will be addressed in the next major version for the Control-M for SAP.
