I have a comma-delimited file that looks like this:

Code:

----+----1----+----2
99.1,4/24/88
7,12/15/02
33,6/3/92
100.5,12/1/01

I know how to parse by comma, right justify and get it to look like this:
Code:

----+----1----+----2
 99.1  4/24/88
    7 12/15/02
   33   6/3/92
100.5  12/1/01

But what would be even better would be if I could get it to look like this:
Code:

----+----1----+----2
 99.1 1988-04-24
  7.0 2002-12-15
 33.0 1992-06-03
100.5 1992-12-01

I've tried a number of things editing/reformatting subparameters, but apparently either I'm not doing it correctly, or they're not proper subcommands of the Parse or Build parameters.

Any ideas on whether this can be done in one pass???

Yes. Not as part of PARSE, but you can specify multiple IFTHEN statements. You want to look at EDIT masks for fields, and look at date conversion functions.

There are examples here, I'm sure. Your favourite search engine will pick up more. You have a manual? Look up the functions, and do a search, you'll get examples.

If you get stuck, show what you tried, with sample input, expected output and what you got.
