Subj:   Re: Loading Packed data to A Date column
From:   Michael Larkins

Hi All:

I am new to this list, before I retired from NCR I taught the utilities and did a lot of work with them.

I think if I were attempting to solve this problem, here is what I would do:

1. In the DEFINE use the Decimal(5,0) as previously suggested.

2. Set the CenturyBreak value in the DBS Control record to 00, so that all incoming years are interpretted as 2000+

3. On the INSERT for the DATE column --> :TRANDATE (DATE, FORMAT 'YYMMM')

Assuming the date field is a signed numeric COMP data type, this has a good chance of working.
