concatenat alphanumeric with time

(OP)
Hi,

     I need to concatenate 2 feilds of the following format;
DAYNAME/A9 AND NEWTIME1/HHI And result should be display as Mon 16:00/Tue 08:00/Mon 09:00 etc.

RE: concatenat alphanumeric with time

You can ONLY concatenate ALPHA fields, so you have to first convert the time field (NEWTIME1) to alpha.

This can be done using the subroutine HCNVRT, like this:

CODE

TIMEALPHA/A8 = HCNVRT(NEWTIME1,'(HHI)',8,'A8');

Then, you can concatenate the result like any other alpha field.
