I have a client who, inexplicably (to me) stores both the date and the time in (T) fields.
For instance, they’ll do something like
Move *DATX to #TimeField(T)
add 720000 to #TimeField
WRITE #TIMEFIELD (EM=MM-DD-YY,HH:II:SS.T)
They want me to store this date/time hybrid in an alpha field (an A100), then retrieve it later for comparison to a T field from another file. Moving the Time field to the alpha field is not the problem I’m having (obviously). It’s later, when I want to pull it back out and throw it into a local time variable and compare it to the other time field. I’m not able to move the alpha into a time field. I’ve tried a variety of things, but to no avail.
Okay - there’s the background. The question is this -
Is there an edit mask by which I can move the alpha into the time? If it was simply the time I could say MOVE EDITED #ALPHAFIELD TO #NEWTIMEFIELD (EM=HHIISS). But, it’s not and I’ve not found in any documentation about a date/time mask.
Hope I was clear in my explanation and that someone can help.
