Chris, Excel uses a starting date of 01/01/1900 (Windows) 01/01/1904
(Macintosh). if the day was 03 January 1900 (on a windoz system) then
the value would be three(3). Use the Date routines and have your
starting date as 01/01/1900.

Can someone tell the formula to convert 20010318  to 36968.

This would be just like the DATEVALUE in Excel.  

Thanks
Chris
