Chris,

It almost looks like a form of julian date based on 1900-01-01, but it
appears to be a couple of days off. In RPGIV, you could use SUBDUR and a
constant date value of 1899-12-30 to calculate this goofy julian. Of course
you want to specify the result in *D (days).

hth,
Eric DeLong

Can someone tell the formula to convert 20010318  to 36968.

This would be just like the DATEVALUE in Excel.  

Thanks
Chris
