Description

Returns a date from three given numbers: year, month and day

The year will be set according to the following:
0 <= YEAR < YEAR-LIMIT ...... year in the 21st. century
YEAR-LIMIT<= YEAR < 100 ..... year in the 20th. Century

If the resulting date is not valid, a null date will be returned.

The date format returned depends on the selected language:
English: "mm/dd/yy"
Portuguese: "dd/mm/yy"
Spanish: "dd/mm/yy"
Italian: "dd/mm/yy"

Note:
We suggest the use of this function instead of CTOD(). It does not vary with the language.

Examples

1. Using two digits for the year

&YY = 91
&MM = 10
&DD = 15
YMDTOD(&YY, &MM, &DD) 

Result: 10/15/91 if English is set as the default Language.

2. Using four digits for the year

&YY = 1999
&MM = 08
&DD = 15
YMDTOD(&YY, &MM, &DD) 

Result: 08/15/1999 if English is set as the default Language.
