Thanks for the quick replies. You're right. It doesn't make sense as YMDHMS. 1:1933, 2:Month=35?, 3:Day=90?

------------- DECIMAL -------------

[VALUE] 1 2 3 | 4 5 6
!#ZF.U 33 35 90 | 70 46 85

When I run it the UNIX way, number of seconds since 1/1/1970 12:00 AM, I get the following integer:
36435722120789

That converts to about 421709746.77 days which then means the date is... 1,154,578.36
years after 1970. If I treat the number as milliseconds since 1970, the date is 8/8/3124.

This sample date should be somewhere between 2000 and 2010.

I've run out of ideas. Any suggestions?
