did you try the following:

Release V5R3M0 and higher:
DateMDY = %Dec(%Date(): *MDY);

Release V5R2M0
DateMDY = %Int(%Char(%Date(): *MDY0));

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

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.
