Posted: 6 May 03 (Edited 30 Apr 05)

There are a number of databases that store their dates as an 8 digit integer in a YYYYMMDD format.  For those faced with this dilemna, there is a UFL available from Business Objects that will convert this to a real date.

NumberToDate(20030506) will return 5/6/2003, a real date.

The link to this UFL is here:


Just install this UFL, and the NumberToDate() function should appear in crystal under additional functions.
