[CLOSED] DATETRAN to (tr) format

Why does this not work for Month > tr, where it works for the 'Day' formatting? I must be overlooking something?

Works:
-SET &CVTDAT     = IF &PERIOD EQ 'M' THEN EDIT(&DATE,'$$$$99') ELSE '';
-SET &DATTIT     = IF &PERIOD EQ 'D' THEN DATETRAN(DATECVT(&DATE, 'I8YYMD', 'DMYY'), '(DMYY)', '(/)', 'EN', 10, 'A10')
-             ELSE IF &PERIOD EQ 'M' THEN DATETRAN(&CVTDAT, '(M)', '(tr)', 'EN', 10, 'A10')  


Does not work:
-SET &DATTIT     = IF &PERIOD EQ 'D' THEN DATETRAN(DATECVT(&DATE, 'I8YYMD', 'DMYY'), '(DMYY)', '(/)', 'EN', 10, 'A10')
-             ELSE IF &PERIOD EQ 'M' THEN DATETRAN(DATECVT(&DATE, 'I6YM', '(M)'), '(tr)', '(/)', 'EN', 10, 'A10')

Don't understand how you can say that:
quote:

-SET &CVTDAT = IF &PERIOD EQ 'M' THEN EDIT(&DATE,'$$$$99') ELSE '';
-SET &DATTIT = IF &PERIOD EQ 'D' THEN DATETRAN(DATECVT(&DATE, 'I8YYMD', 'DMYY'), '(DMYY)', '(/)', 'EN', 10, 'A10')
- ELSE IF &PERIOD EQ 'M' THEN DATETRAN(&CVTDAT, '(M)', '(tr)', 'EN', 10, 'A10')


is working because there are few errors that doesn't make it work.

But this does :
-SET &PERIOD = 'D';
-SET &CVTDAT     = EDIT(&YYMD,'$$$$99');
-SET &DATTIT     = IF &PERIOD EQ 'D' THEN DATETRAN(DATECVT(&YYMD, 'I8YYMD', 'DMYY'), '(DMYY)', '(/)', 'EN', 10, 'A10')
-             ELSE IF &PERIOD EQ 'M' THEN DATETRAN(&CVTDAT, '(M)', '(tr)', 'EN', 10, 'A10'); 

-TYPE &|DATE: &DATE
-TYPE &|YYMD: &YYMD
-TYPE &|CVTDAT: &CVTDAT
-TYPE &|DATTIT: &DATTIT

Yes Martin I know this is working, but what I'm trying to accomplish here is that I don't have to do the separate SET for EDIT, but 'all in one' function just like the day is just one line.

It always helps to check the valid arguments for functions and check your own code. 'I6YM' is not a valid input date format and '(tr)' is not a valid input argument for DATETRAN. Use the correct formats and arguments and it works fine.
