Thanks Chuck - I'll pass this along to the programmer handling it now that
we've got it going.

After initializing the BEGIN-DATE (date) to '9999-12-31' and JELLA
(time) field to '23.59.59' , the program compiled and ran. Now to hand
it back to the programmer for her to continue working with it.

FWiW: The database treats the time 24:00:00 as greater than the time
00:00:00, such that they are not considered equivalent *except* when they
are part of two TIMESTAMP values for successive dates whereby the prior date
has 24.00.00 time and the [next day] later date has 00.00.00 time. Thus the
effective *HIVAL for the TIME is '24.00.00', not '23.59.59'.
