In outbound Cleo (EXTOL) EDI Integrator mapping, we might need to send today's current date and in a specific format, ie 20160626.
In out example below we assigned a dummy field to the outbound x12 810 field: BIG04. Once the field is attached, we will use EXTOL's shipped program (code table): RTVDTM. Once RTVDTM is applied, we use the qualifer *ZMD for the date format: yyyymmdd.
For more details on RTVDTM, users can review the RTVDTM RPG Source Code to determine the correct qualifiers, ie. *ZMD, *ISO, *YMD and etc.
