You might also consider the common ILE APIs such as QWCCVTDT to convert formats. Beyond that there is a nice set of AS/400 Standard date routines commercially available that presents over 100 different variations of 2 & 4 digit dates including duration and day of week calcs. The package even does the file conversion programs, validates the data, constructs the new files LF & PF then moves the data over. Got the feeling it might even work as a good bridge tool too.
