The internal format of date in the table TCURR is called INVERTED date. If you want to select some data from this table you'll be in trouble if you don't know this. Here are the functions that help you to convert between formats. Also, the command CONVERT is very useful for these purposes.


DATA: XVAL(8) TYPE C VALUE '80009187'.
DATA: FECHA(10) TYPE C.

CALL FUNCTION 'CONVERSION_EXIT_INVDT_OUTPUT'
EXPORTING INPUT = XVAL "C(8) formato inverted
IMPORTING OUTPUT = FECHA "c(10) dd.mm.yyyy
EXCEPTIONS OTHERS = 1.
WRITE: SY-SUBRC, XVAL, FECHA.

WRITE SY-DATUM TO FECHA DD/MM/YYYY.
CALL FUNCTION 'CONVERSION_EXIT_INVDT_INPUT'
EXPORTING INPUT = FECHA "C(10) dd.mm.yyyy
IMPORTING OUTPUT = XVAL "C(8) formato inverted
EXCEPTIONS OTHERS = 1.
WRITE: / SY-SUBRC, FECHA,XVAL.
