Description

The TTOD() function is the datetime to date conversion function. It converts the <expT> datetime expression specified to a date. The <expT> must be a valid datetime, or the TTOD() function will return an empty date. The date returned will conform to the current SET DATE, SET MARK and SET CENTURY settings. For example, the default settings, SET DATE AMERICAN and SET CENTURY ON, will return a date in the format "MM/DD/YYYY".

Example

set date american
set century on
mdate = ttod({^2004-03-29 10:15:43 AM})
? mdate
03/29/2004
? type("mdate")
