The last time I did this I ended up concatenating the character values of
the Excel DAY, MONTH, and YEAR functions into another column, and dropping
the value of that string into another.  I just searched, but I don't still
have the spreadsheet.  It took a long time to debug, but I had given up on
dealing with the integer value behind the date cells, and couldn't find an
easy way to translate dates into values while retaining the format.

I'm sure there's a better way...

Subject: Upload Date Data from Excel


I have an Excel spreadsheet with columns that are dates.  When I upload to
the AS/400 it becomes a number.  Anyone know how to bring the date up?

Thanks,
