In a word,   Rewrite.

Unless you like 10 lines of calcs that say
    10
OR  20
AN  30
OR N20
AN N55
OR  97
AN N98
OR 
AN
OR 
AN
Finally   a line of working calcs.  (only 1 lefthand *IN in RPGIV)

And of course you would want to take advantange of Native Date Data
Types that perform Great( <VBG> <LOL> )
