Hello to all!

I have looked thru the archives and could not find an answer so thought
I would just ask.

We have decided on all new developement to use ISO dates.  The
programmer who is working on the first implementation of this has ran
into some problems.  It is his contention that:

1.  If you define a date with type L on the screen.  This field may not
be left blank and the users must enter 0001-01-01.  

2.  Doing a cpyf if the field is blank, it is initialized to the current

3.  We will need to define dates on the screen a 8,0 and within the
program do the date validation manually and handle 0 and 0001-01-01.  

I guess if #3 is the way we need to go it will only take a couple of
moves, a couple of ifs,  and a test statement.  Are there any other
suggestions of how this is being handled.

Thanks in advance.
