I came across Mitchel Laman's article entitled "RPG free-format date conversion cheat sheet" and felt like I'd struck gold.  Thank you Mitchel!  However, I cannot get this set of conversions to work: @numA = %dec(%char(@dateA:*ymd/):6:0);     @numB = %dec(%char(@dateA:*cymd/):7:0);   @numC = %dec(%char(@dateA:*iso-) :8 :0);   @numD = %dec(%char(@dateA:*mdy/):6:0);    @numE = %dec(%char(@dateA:*usa/):8:0); 

 

I get this error with all five of them: A character representation of a numeric value is in error (C G D F). What am I doing wrong? Thanks.

    odd .. life and the formats Where you've got / you need 0 the formats like *mdy include the seperators so today is 02/01//12 trying to convert this to a decimal will create an error .. but most of the formats have an alter-ego, go Clark Kent, like this *mdy0 today in this format is 020112 which can be converted to a decimal.
