In RPG, how do you change a date format to *longjul. I haven't found this format in the definition specs. I can change dates from *longjul within the C specs: *longjul Move LJdate NewDate but I have to call a program for the reverse.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

If you look in the Information Center online under Programming/API you will find an API program named QWCCVTDT. This is a convert date program you can call from RPG and it will allow you to convert dates from a variety of formats to another. From the parameter descriptions you can go from one format to *longjul or *longul to another format.

Under the API topc is an API finder program that will find this API program by searching on the name.
