Data
I have an AS/400 field called ADMIT_DATE that is typed DECIMAL(8,0). It contains values such as 20061031. (including the decimal point). I would like to convert that field to an AS/400 DATE field such that the resulting values look like 2006-10-31. Can someone provide an example using the AS/400 type conversion functions? Thanks.

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

If you are using RPG, try the %Date() BIF.

If you are using SQL, use the Cast or Date functions.
