OPC systemdate question

Postby Heegsma » Wed Jun 23, 2010 7:52 pm

We would like to use OPC to give the systemdate or systemdate +1 to a variable in a program.

But the program request a specific format, which OPC doesn't like accoring to me. The format is: DD-MM-CCYY (23-06-2010)

Is there anyone which can help me and telling me if it is possible to give the systemdate using OPC to a variable in a program by changing the JCL.
Now we have to change the date every time manually, and the program needs to run everyday with changing date(systemdate)

Yours Sincerely,

HAve you checked to see if the program must have the dash as a field seperator, because TWS (as it is no longer called OPC) can generate dates in DD/MM/CCYY formats.

It may also be worth talking to your TWS support to see if they can generate a date variable in the correct format.
