They aren’t working. I’m talking about @PrintDateShort and @PrintTimeShort. Here’s a footer using these codes to show the date and time the report was generated:
That’s not what they’re pulling though. When the report is opened, they pull the current system date and system time.
So they update whenever you reopen the report in either the Web Viewer or the Report Viewer, giving you an inaccurate date.
