Hi i am using below function

Date1 defination pIC 9(08).
Date2 defination pIC 9(08).

MOVE FUNCTION INTEGER-OF-DATE(date1)
TO date2.

When i compile the program

Numeric function "INTEGER FUNCTION INTEGER-OF-DATE" was not allowed in this context. The statement was discarded.

Kindly let me know how can it be resolved for above Move statement

It must be used as part of an arithmetic expression. EG:

Code:

03  WS-INTEGER-OF-DATE PIC S9(09) COMP-3.

MOVE 20101124 TO DATE1.
COMPUTE WS-INTEGER-OF-DATE = FUNCTION INTEGER-OF-DATE (DATE1).

This is clearly documented in the IBM documentation, so for future reference as well as avoid being flamed, may I suggest -

http://www.ibmmainframes.com/manuals.php

OR -

http://publibz.boulder.ibm.com/cgi-bin/bookmgr_OS390/library

Thank you for your support....

Bill
