date field in work file

Can anybody explain me How many characters will a date field (type D) occupy in a work file?

:arrow: 4 bytes

Thanks Wolfgang. For Time is it 6 bytes or 7 bytes?


Time-Fields are 7 bytes long.

By the way: Both fields (Date and Time) can be treated as packed mumerics.
-> A Date-field contains the number of days since the birth of christ.
-> A Time-field contains the number tens of a second since the birth of christ.

Hope this helps…

Thanks Matthias
