As you may already know, the value displayed
appears to be the hex value of the EBCDIC
characters for the date, so as Rob points
out, maybe the date is not translated because
the data is being transferred from a file
where the CCSID is 65535 - which is read
by the operating system as "no translation".

So in the "Receive File From Host..." Actions
menu, on the File - Properties window, maybe
check "Convert CCSID 65535" ?

Subject: Data Transfer from i series to excel file or display give hexadecimal values fro date

The user seemed to complain of this first, but when I check I to data transfer a file from iseries to display or file, the date appear F0F961F0F261F1F9F2F5.
I assumed its something to with IBM iseries access for windows (she was using V5R4), so had her install V6R1 IBM i series access for windows.
We use V6R1 operating system.
Is there a PTF or software update that's required to fix this?
