    Possible MOSS 2007 bug in content query web part?


    Moss content query web part bugOne of my colleague found out one funny bug in moss 2007. Here are the steps to reproduce it:

    1. Add the content query web part, set to query items from page libraries from the whole site collection. (this should be default).
    2. Add filter on “Scheduling End Date” and set to a specific date
    3. Apply the setting and close the web part properties pane
    4. Open back the properties pane, settings for the date are gone, and went back to [Today]. 

    This seems like a bug in MOSS 2007.  The bug still exist after install SP1. Do let me know if anybody out there having the same problem and solutions.

    p/s: My colleague already contacted a MS guy in my region. I will update this blog once got any feedback from them.
