Hello,

You did not post what mmddyy date results from 80109898. . .

That is not a "date value" we are familiar with and needs explanation. How does 80109898 "convert" to mmddyy (or any other date presentation)?

Is this a 9's complement date? If so, first subtract the value from 99999999 and the resulting value can be manipulated as YYYYMMDD.

Thanks Dick ... we've got a system that uses 9's complement dates that are VSAM key components; the 9's complement keeps them from all inserting at the end of the file.
