Unanswered: newbie question convert date field to numeric
I'm trying to write an aix script to delete my db2 backups. I get the system date in a field in ccyymm format. I want to subtract 1 from that field (date). I get an error because the variable that I built from the date is alpha?? How do I convert that field to numeric?
