Problem:

When you run the Domino Report Server/400 output queue monitor (NTSMON), you get the error:
 
NTSERR: Error converting date for storage

Solution:

The dates are not formatted correctly when they are passed to the NTSADDRPT command. This can occur with international date formats, such as DD/MM/YYYY, and so on.
 
In Domino Report Server/400 version 1.20 and above, the NTSDATEFMT data area controls the date formatting for the Domino Report Server/400 output queue monitor (NTSMON). The default value is *SYSVAL.
 
To display the current value of NTSDATEFMT:
 
DSPDTAARA DTAARA(RJSDOM/NTSDATEFMT)
 
To resolve this problem, change the date format in NTSDATEFMT using the following command and one of the date-format values below:
 
CHGDTAARA DTAARA(RJSDOM/NTSDATEFMT) VALUE(*SYSVAL) 
 
Possible values:
  • *SYSVAL -  Use the iSeries system date format. This works for all US systems, but may not work on international systems.
    To determine the current iSeries system date format, use:
     
    DSPSYSVAL SYSVAL(QDATFMT)
  • *DMYY - DD/MM/YYYY. Many European countries use this format.
  • *MDYY - MM/DD/YYYY
  • *YYMD - YYYY/MM/DD
  • *MDY -  MM/DD/YY
  • *DMY - DD/MM/YY   
  • *YMD - YY/MM/DD
