First, define fields as data types:
d jul_date s d datfmt(*jul)
d iso_date s d datfmt(*iso)
Then move the iso date you want to convert into your new *iso field:
move field iso_date
Then move the *iso field into the *jul field:
move iso_date jul_date
With the iso_date and jul_date variables defined as above, the ‘conversion’ itself could simply be (in /free):<pre>
jul_date = iso_date ; </pre>
And in fixed-form, it’s just an EVAL.
There doesn’t seem to be much need for anything like TAATOOLS for something this easy. Perhaps the problem is more complex and needs clarification.
