I’m currently working on a major new version of the datatool package. This may take a while. Please be patient. (Experimental version available for testing.)

Summary Use of \nr as a scratch macro conflicts with other packages

The datetime2 package uses \nr as a scratch macro for \define@choicekey{datetime2.sty}{useregional}

This conflicts with nccmath, that has a macro with that name.

It's true that the examples in xkeyval use \nr for the purpose, but it can be anything. Also \val can be anything.

It would be better to use \DTM@val and \DTM@nr.

See Command \nr already defined (datetime2 and nccmath incompatibility)

Fixed in version 1.5.4 (2019-10-21).
