I've been asked to convert an old database made up of fixed length record files. I've deciphered all the fields using a VB program except the date fields. The old docs say the date fields are stored as single (S0) ... my question is: How to I convert these dates to a real date? The data values look like: 930501, 941201, 951130, 960331, 960430, etc. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!
