I figure it out by myself

Local NumberVar ano;
Local NumberVar mes;
Local NumberVar dia;
if Length ({TEMPIN.CB}) = 30 then
(   dia := tonumber(left(right({TEMPIN.CB},27),2)) ;
mes := tonumber (left(right({TEMPIN.CB},24),1));
ano := tonumber (left(right({TEMPIN.CB},23),2))+ 2000;
datevalue(ano,mes,dia);
)

Else
(   dia := tonumber(left(right({TEMPIN.CB},15),2)) ;
mes := tonumber (left(right({TEMPIN.CB},12),1));
ano := tonumber (left(right({TEMPIN.CB},11),2))+ 2000;
datevalue(ano,mes,dia);
)
