I received this rather intimidating error while running a Presentation Studio batch print job in PortfolioCenter:

Error building presentations – [Compilation of client presentation failed [‘System.Windows.Data.BindingExpression’ value cannot be assigned to property ‘ItemsSource’ of object ‘System.Windows.Controls.ListBox’.SqlDateTime overflow.  Must be between 1/1/1753 12:00:00 AM and 12/31/9999 11:59:59 PM.  Error at object ‘System.Windows.Data.Binding’,Line 1 Position 85.]]

What does it mean?

It means a portfolio in your report set has with no Performance Inception Date.  Typically this situation would happen because you have a new client whose accounts have been created but not yet funded.  The Performance Inception date is blank and the portfolio or group was added to your report set when you updated sets.

What should you do?

Click OK and let the batch job finish.  Typically this is an error you can ignore.

Need help?
