You Asked

Dear Tom ,

When Downloading the data from interactive Grid it gives me wrong date (the date on excel is different from the one that appears on the grid)
It Gives me 1905 for the year

would you please inform me how to solve this problem

Thank You

Best Regards

Update:-

a simple example is as follow:- in my program the customer order date as it appears on the browser is "10-12-2020' when downloaded to excel the order date is "12-07-1905"

Please note that this happened using web browser on windows XP

and we said...

Please put together a simple example of apex.oracle.com and then send us the link by updating this question

You date is probably stored incorrectly.

12th July 1905 is 2020 days after Jan 1st 1900. So the *number* 2020 is going down into Excel, and becoming 12th July 1905
