ORA-01843: not a valid month

Good afternoon, folks.

I floor your support so that I can fix an error that comes to me when using the scheduled update, as some of my reports generate update error with the following message ( ORA-01843: not a valid month), but I must say that this error only occurs in the scheduled update, because if I use the option to update from the desktop application, it does not show any errors.

I thank you for all the support you can give me.

Hello @Syndicate_Admin ,


Any errors that start with ORA mean that they are ORACLE related errors.

So this error occurs when you send the SQL query to the database.


You should check your SQL query and make sure that it is correct.
