Inclusion in RPG source

. . .
. . .



Input Parameters

Data area which contains the date (YYYYMMDD) to be used through the day by certain jobs until, for example, a day-closure starts during the night. The data area must be set to the new day date at the end of the day-closure.

Output Parameters

Field to contain the work day date as Year-Month-Day (YYYYMMDD).
Field to contain the work day date as Day-Month-Year (DDMMYYYY).
SYSDD (d2)
Field to contain the day number of the work day date (DD).
SYSMM (d2)
Field to contain the month number of the work day date (MM).
SYSYY (d4)
Field to contain the year of the work day date (YYYY).

What it does

The routine is used in programs that run after midnight but should still use the date of the day before. In some companies, working days start at 6:00 and end the next day at 3:00; so a work day spans over two calendar days.
This routine must be called at the start of the program.
If you want to have the system date instead, use FN_SYSDAT. It uses the same invocation and output paramaters.
