Here's a test I ran....
dcl-s charfield char(10);
dcl-s datepo packed(8 : 0) inz(20210501);
CharField = %char(%date(datepo : *iso): *USA);
dsply charfield '*EXT';
*inlr = *on;
Resulted in charfield = 05/01/2021

Subject: date issue
I am passing in a numeric field that is a 8 digit date, I want it to convert to *USA MM/DD/YYYY
D CHARDATE1 S 8 0 INZ(01151949)
D USADATE S D DATFMT(*USA)
C MOVE DATEPO CHARDATE1
C EVAL USADATE = %DATE(CHARDATE1: *usa )
C MOVE USADATE ORDDAT1
Passing is a date into DATEPO of 20210325
What I need is ORDDAT1 to come back as 03/25/2021
Any ideas would be appreciated.
