Comments and Examples
The following example sets the month to 10 (October), the day to 16, and the year to 1989:
The next example will return a string similar to: Monday, October 16, 1989
Date$("Day, Month D, CCYY")
Return the date in yy/mm/dd format.
Date's two parameter formats allow you to separate the elements of the date by slashes ("mm/dd/yy") or by dashes ("mm-dd-yy").
Changes to the date apply only to a single workstation - current session only. Note that date is set as month, day and year, while it is reported by the date command as year, month and day. This is a legacy characteristic that has not been changed because normally the DATE function is used by programs instead of the DATE command.
