Routine will not return value. Just inserts name.

Routine will not return value. Just inserts name.

Routine is compiled and working called EDWGetChangeDate and should accept value of 'dummy' and return a datetime value.  Test works.

A Fact Job declares the following Parameter:
Parameter name:  changeCaptureDate
Prompt: Change Date
Type:  String
Default value:  EDWGetChangeDate('dummy')

ODBC task in the Fact Job has following SQL Code in Outputs/SQL Query tabs

(so.DateUpdated > '#changeCaptureDate#'
or s.DateUpdated > '#changeCaptureDate#'

In production the job changes #changeCaptureDate# into a datetime value and SQL works.  In development server it changes the value to 'EDWGetChangeDate('dummy')' as if it is a string value, not a routine to run.

I have compiled the Fact job and Routine on the development server.  Any idea's why this would NOT see this as a routine to run and instead sees it as a string of text?
