This utility will allow any user of your programs to prompt on a date. This will make a calendar appear in the top left corner of the screen. The user can then select a date by moving their cursor over the day and pressing Enter. The program will capture that day and return the date to your program in whatever format you desire.
The program accepts 3 parameters...
1. A 6 digit variable - for 6 digit dates
2. An 8 digit variable - for 8 digit dates
3. An actual date variable - for date dates

Note: The parameters used for the above program are not compatible when called from a COBOL program.
