NUMBERTODATE (single-integer-expression)
Meaning:
NUMBERTODATE (integer_to_convert)

A single date

After converting an integer to a date, if the result is being assigned to a date object, the resulting date is in the presentation for that output. If the resulting date is not being assigned to an object, it has a CCYYMMDD presentation.

When the year exceeds four digits, the output will display hash characters (#) for the CCYY values because the field is defined to be only four digits in length.

Examples

  • NUMBERTODATE (StartDate)

    This example converts the StartDate value from an integer to a date that is in CCYYMMDD format.
