Could you please help me on this.  Actually, I am
trying to  convert a  numerical  variable from
MMDDCCYY  format to  CCYYMMDD  .  ( and Vice versa )
Even though , we can do this by  using data structure, I would rather like
to use the new functioanality of ILE RPG.

For that,  I  have tried using date stamp field.

1. Moving   the numerical  value ( 8, 0)  to    DATE STAMP Field with  (
Date format  *USA)

2.  Moving   Date Stamp Field ( *USA)     TO    another date stamp field

3.  Finally,  moving  Date Stamp Filed (*ISO)     TO     Result  Field (
Numerical variable with 8, 0 )

The above method works fine.

 I was looking around for other better methods, because  in RPG/400, it is
just  one  statement ( multiplying by  10000.01),
but in  ILE RPG it  takes three statement and two more additional  work
field declaration ( Date stamp field).

Could  you please tell me , is there any other better methods  like  using
Built in function.?

Can we create our  own built-in function?.

Any help is greatly appriciated.
