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.

Duane Danner
