Date format

I am trying to export data out of Adapt CRM the date formats are 6 digit numbers for example 732840.

I need to convert this to a readable date format.

Any Ideas....

RE: Date format

You'll need to contact Adapt to find out the way they store dates.  They obviously don't use the Btrieve date data type.
You might put  a series of known dates and try to figure out the method yourself. For example, what date the value 732840 correspond to within Adapt?

RE: Date format

I figured it out the date is based on the number of days since year 0000, Once I formated it in excel I realized it was just off by 1900 years.

Thank you Don for your help.


RE: Date format

I work with an application that uses the same date format.  Would any one know of the correct function to use to convert into a date through PSQL.  I can do the conversion usind DateSerial after linked to MS SQL or MS Excel, but I was curious to see what the equivalent would be when creating a PSQL view from the Pervasive Control Center.

The date format in the application is the number of days since 01/01/0001.
