Hi, did you try the following: Release V5R3M0 and higher: DateMDY = %Dec(%Date(): *MDY); Release V5R2M0 DateMDY = %Int(%Char(%Date(): *MDY0)); Mit freundlichen Gruessen / Best regards Birgitta "Shoot for the moon, even if you miss, you'll land among the stars."

April 2006 15:10 An: RPG Group Betreff: converting system date to integer I am in need of converting a system date to a six digit numeric.... So if the system date is say 04/14/06 I need to convert it to a 041406 numeric type... I thought about doing it by using a move statement with *MDY in factor one but I don't believe that will work as I would have to use 10 digits for the date. the problem is we have some display files that there is not enough room to allow for a four digit year and I am not prepared at this time to re-write the entire file. Suggestions or hints? If you bought it, it was hauled by a truck - somewhere, sometime. -- This is the RPG programming on the AS400 / iSeries (RPG400-L) mailing list To post a message email: RPG400-L@xxxxxxxxxxxx To subscribe, unsubscribe, or change list options, visit: http://lists.midrange.com/mailman/listinfo/rpg400-l or email: RPG400-L-request@xxxxxxxxxxxx Before posting, please take a moment to review the archives at http://archive.midrange.com/rpg400-l.
