I have to regularly run queries over files that have Julian dates as fields. These are often files from JDE. The...
format would be 99011, or 100350. To convert that to a "readable" format would mean a CL program, or RPG. The date comes out as 11/01/99, or 15/12/00.
Luckily, standard query can do that for you. Go to "Define result fields" and create these fields. GLDGJ would be your Julian date field, and GLDAT would be your new work field. Works for pre-and post 2000.
To convert a Julian date to a normal date in query:
NDAT 1900000 + gldgj 7 0 CDAT digits(ndat) GLDAT date(cdat)
