Having some problems getting my dates to come across
correctly on an Excel to iSeries transfer.

Anyway I am getting a number that appears to be
something like the number of days from some point
in time. Not getting iSeries dates.

The number of days is how Excel stores dates.

You haven't answered what format you are using for your date fields on
the iSeries. But I would guess you're not using an iSeries *date*
field, if you are seeing the Excel date as a number. If you are using
some kind of numeric field on your iSeries to receive the Excel dates,
I would recommend massaging your Excel data in Excel before trying to
transfer it to the iSeries (for example, using a formula) or, as
someone else suggested, saving your data as CSV first, and then
transferring the CSV. (If you do this, you should format your date in
Excel the way you would like it to LOOK in the CSV, before saving it
to the CSV.)
