I'm working of JD Edwards DB2 AS/400 and CR10.  The only date I can get to is a Juian date.  How do I convert to a calendar date?  I see lots of advise on how to do the opposite.

Thank you!

Can you post some sample dates that you have and what you expect to see?


Additional information:

PHDSE      @StartDate
105073      2005073
105092      2005092
106033      2006033
106034      2006034

The PHDSE is the raw data from the table, @StartDate is my formula which is adding 1900000 to PHDSE.  So the first one is the 73rd day of 2005 or 03/14/05.  The last one listed is the 34th day of 2006 or 02/03/06.
