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

There is an operating system command, CVTDAT, through which you can convert dates from one format to another. So, you can execute that command from CL and send it the necessary parameters that it needs – just prompt the command with F4 to see the parameters.

FYI, if you later end up needing to do things like this in a high level language, such as RPG IV/ILE or ILE COBOL, you are much better off using their built in date support.
