Hi,

Can anyone help me in this..

I need to compare two dates and the result will be the difference between the two dates.
for example..

WS-DUE-DATE W 10 A
WS-CAN-DATE W 10 A
WS-DATE-DIFF W 4 N VALUE 0

WS-DUE-DATE 20120120
WS-CAN-DATE 20120101

if we compare the above dates the difference should be in WS-DATE-DIFF.
WS-DATE-DIFF = 19



Thanks in advance.

If you "compare" two dates, you don't get access to the difference, your code just respects the path which results from the compare being true/false.

If you want to get a difference between dates, you'll have to subtract them, and to do that you'll need to convert them to days, or use some program to do it.

The usual way :-)

Do you have some date routine which is used by Cobol progams? If not, see if LE has something. Else you have to code it yourself, and may as well make it a sub-routine which can be used generally.
