Hi
        Thought I'd be Y2k Compliant and created timestamp field in data file.
Since I added the field and did a CHGPF based on source did not loose any
data. However the field was initialized to 0001-01-01-000 etc.

        I want to display this filed on the screen and wrote a little program.

        First problem, could not figure out how to define the stamp to be
displayed.

        So defined a date type field and Time type filed.

Did a MOVE of Timestamp to date type field.

        Program fell over.... Date has to be within 1940 to 2039 range. Error
message was pretty explicit about this..

        What goes... Yes timestamp will when program is live be in the correct
range, but it does raise questions about the Move operation?
