I am running O.C. 2.5.3 and am having the following problem. It seems that the data base changes the values of the Month and date when entered giving incorrect values. It seems this is a systematic error where for example when you enter a date like DD/MM/YYYY as in 09/02/2010, the data base registers MM/DD-1/YYYY as in month and day are changed but also there is a reduction in the value of the month less one so our example here is registered as 09/01/2010.
From the above you can see that the date 09 becomes the month but value remains the same, however the month which now has become the date has its value reduced by one in the database.
I guess the database has the American system of dating while our CRFs used the British system but still, the reduction by one of the value of the month/day is still an error.
It also seems that where the value may have been entered as for example 23/10/2009, since the 23 is more than the expected value of a month, the value is coded as 98 in the data base. giving 98/09/2009.
Does anyone have any idea how I might be able to fix this? I have ~1700 patients and multiple forms and would prefer to avoid data re-entry if possible. I thought maybe a rule would fix this, but wanted to verify before I made the changes.
