You can use


MOVE WS-CURRENT-DATE TO WS-CURR-DATE-2.
COMPUTE AS-OF-INT = FUNCTION INTEGER-OF-DATE (AS-OF-DATE).
COMPUTE AS-OF-JUL = FUNCTION DAY-OF-INTEGER (AS-OF-INT).
COMPUTE CURR-INT = FUNCTION INTEGER-OF-DATE
(WS-CURR-DATE-2).
COMPUTE CURR-JUL = FUNCTION DAY-OF-INTEGER (CURR-INT).
DIFF-DATE = CURR-INT - AS-OF-INT

note the julian day conversion.

Sure, but the complexity depends on what level of COBOL and LE you are at.... icon_smile.gif
