"'COBOL Programming on the IBM i (AS/400 and iSeries)'" <cobol400-
[COBOL400-L] what is a common and quality method of adding a record
to a file with "L" date data type fields?
Is writing a date value of 01/01/0001 a good idea?
Or is setting field to null work better?
When using alpha fields in the past, many folks would code to put
'00000000' in any alpha or numeric date field that was undefined.
What is a good approach for iseries date fields on add?
