Jim, Alan

I participated in a thread discussing where there was a bug in the Excel
date calculation routine, about a year ago.  Don't recall even what list it
was on.. maybe RPG-L.  I think there was discussion on the calculations
Excel uses.  Don't recall it as complicated...

| Wow Jim that was a very creative solution.  It would be a bit
| cumbersome in
| my situation.  Our warehouse vendor is sending us a file of open
| orders and
| I want to compare for discrepancies with our order files.  Several of the
| columns they are sending are date fields.  I guess there must be
| documentation on how to convert that Excel number to a date but I
| was hoping
| IBM or someone else had done it for me :)

| 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...

| 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?
