    p_file_96: acceptable forms of date

    What forms of the date can p_file_96 handle in the order date in the 980 field in the input record?

    The p_file_96 loader job expects 980 dates to be in the yyyymmdd format. {It does accept a yyyymm date (without the day) -- in which case it supplies the last day of the month as the date.}

    The tab_def_96 table allows for the specification of a Z68-ORDER-DATE parameter. If the 980 date is absent or invalid, the value of the Z68-ORDER-DATE parameter (which can be "$C-DATE", today's date) is used.
