Re[2]: Ldate and opnqryf question



fixed


     Once work in a shop where asterisk was pronounced "Nathan Hale" 
     (sp?) since he had but one "as-te-risk" for his country. (I must 
     have worked there nearly four months before somebody explained it 
     to me.....)

I use this for my QRYSLT when using a field DATEL from my database file and 
&DATEPARM from CLP:

QRYSLT('DATEL *EQ "' *CAT &DATEPARM *TCAT '"')

I prefer the double-quote over multiple single quotes (ticks)

BTW, a fellow programmer who came out of Cittone Institute here in NJ was the 
first one to use the
"tick".  I think it sounds nuts to say "tick".  He also says "Splat" for 
asterisk!
