This works:

move function EXTRACT-DATE-TIME (ws-date '@Y %m %d')
to A0468X-DUE-DATE of AFTR

But result is "2012 11 28" (embedded spaces).

The obvious fix is

move function EXTRACT-DATE-TIME (ws-date '@Y%m%d') <--------no spaces between ymd
to A0468X-DUE-DATE of AFTR

But this gives compiler error

* 445 MSGID: LNC2780 SEVERITY: 30 SEQNBR: 027800
Message . . . . : Numeric function 'FUNCTION EXTRACT-DATE-TIME' was
found, but was not allowed in this context. Statement discarded.

Any idea how to get YYYYMMDD result?
