I previously posted this message with an inappropriate subject line.  Here
it is again.


Quick question.

I have a numeric variable (float) of the form:  19460515

The variable actually refers to the date, May 15, 1946.  Truncating and
concatenating functions appear to operate only on string variables.  What
approach can I use to change this to the correct date?

Thanks.
