My bad you did say system date.  just remove "somedate:*usa" from the BIF
%Date()

Eval     date60 = %Int(%Char(%Date():*MDY0))


%Date() will return today's date. unless you specify a date.

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.
