why not convert to ILE and let the system handle it? Windowing support for 6
digit dates and the short julian is from 1940-2028, 7 digit dates window
from 1900-2899, and does not window 8 digit dates (*ISO, *USA and *LONGJUL)
(from 0001-9999)

Subject: Determining Age


I wrote a routine that i call and pass 8 digit dates to,  this calculates
the
age of an individual.  I take the passed date and convert it to julian and
take todays date and also convert this to julian.  I then calculate the age
by
substringing out the first 2 digits and subtracting them.  I then use the
day
portion of the julian date and calculate days so that i can modify the age
in
necessary.  My question is that IBM only supports  4 digit dates upto and
including 8/4/1928.  But most of the patients DOB are prior to this and I
don't want to write a second routine.  I've been converting the DOB and all
dates to the mmddyyyy format but have run into this problem.  I'm on R3M2
and
wonder if other dates are supported if I move to a new release?  Or hey if
anyone can come up with a better idea I'm open to any input.  Thanks in
advance..
