I believe that you can still use this.

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

I believe that I was using it back then.  I could be wrong.

The other option is to use the old MOVE op codes.

D IsoDate            s           datfmt(*ISO)

*USA         MOVE   DateUSA     ISODATE
*MDY0      Move    IsoDate         DateMDY.
