Standard scenario ..
CL sets up prompt screen
user choices on prompt screen control choices which RPG JOBQ printer data 
ranges

I want prompt screen default date selection range to pre-compute thru 2 weeks 
into the future

I can write then call an RPG program to translate what that is from today 
date.
Is there a standard CMD or API already available to do this?

hypothetical example

RTVSYSVAL QDATE &TODAY

CALL   QSYS/QDATEMATH 
DAYS(14)   DIRECTION(*PLUS)   START(&TODAY)   RESULT(&RESULT)
