Try making the suffix of the file lower-case: HDAYIDAT.err

check the location of the file. Are you sure it is in wfs\bin?

I modified the suffix to .err, but still same...
Yes the Path is correct, it is wfs\bin....

quote:
\ibi\srv77\wfs\bin\HDAYIDAT.ERR

But your profile states that you are using 7.6.2 so your folder would be srv76 not srv77.

There seems to be some conflict in where the file should be.

Using the search function (top right) for HDAY, there were a few instances that stated the file should live in ibi\srvnn\wfs\bin but others that stated it should be in ibi\srvnn\home\nls (which is where the other "err" files live).

I tried it in both and only ibi\srv77\home\nls resulted in no error message, however using the sample from Norb's recent post (cheers Norb Smiler) the WD- worked but the BD- gave a return of 0 - invalid date - which resulted in the base date being returned (19001231).

If you have need of business days functions, it would be worth raising a case on InfoResponse.

Oh, and remember to use the search function, it could have saved you a lot of time.

Hmmmm, most intreaguing!

Using the code below to write the file contents rather than just typing exactly the same data, worked for Business days whereas it didn't before! Confused

I must have some spurious characters in the original when I typed it myself?

FILEDEF HDAYIDAT DISK c:\ibi\srv77\home\nls\hdayidat.err
-RUN
-WRITE HDAYIDAT 20101029 Test holiday
-RUN
SET HDAY = IDAT
SET BUSDAYS = _MTWTF_
-SET &NEWDATE = '20101031';
-SET &NEWDAT1 = DATECVT((DATEMOV(DATECVT(&NEWDATE,'I8YYMD','YYMD'), 'WD-')), 'YYMD', 'I8YYMD');
-SET &NEWDAT2 = DATECVT((DATEMOV(DATECVT(&NEWDATE,'I8YYMD','YYMD'), 'PWD')), 'YYMD', 'I8YYMD');
-SET &NEWDAT3 = DATECVT((DATEMOV(DATECVT(&NEWDATE,'I8YYMD','YYMD'), 'WD+')), 'YYMD', 'I8YYMD');
-SET &NEWDAT4 = DATECVT((DATEMOV(DATECVT(&NEWDATE,'I8YYMD','YYMD'), 'BD-')), 'YYMD', 'I8YYMD');
-SET &NEWDAT5 = DATECVT((DATEMOV(DATECVT(&NEWDATE,'I8YYMD','YYMD'), 'PBD')), 'YYMD', 'I8YYMD');
-SET &NEWDAT6 = DATECVT((DATEMOV(DATECVT(&NEWDATE,'I8YYMD','YYMD'), 'BD+')), 'YYMD', 'I8YYMD');
-? &NEWDAT

giving
 CURRENTLY DEFINED & VARIABLES STARTING WITH 'NEWDAT':
 &NEWDAT1      = 20101029
 &NEWDAT2      = 20101028
 &NEWDAT3      = 20101101
 &NEWDAT4      = 19001231
 &NEWDAT5      = 19001231
 &NEWDAT6      = 19001231
 &NEWDATE      = 20101031
