in C++ I get/set a timestamp from the database into a variable of DATE type (which is a double). I need a way to get year/month/day as integers from that date without using MFC! (I have an ATL-type of project, no support for MFC).
I would appreciate if someone can provide a working example and an explanation for that problem.

Thanks in advance!

Check out the VariantTimeToSystemTime() api, this converts a DATE double to a SYSTEMTIME structure, which has fields for year, month, and day.

double myDate = 2.5; // 1/1/1900 at noon
SYSTEMTIME mySysTime;

::VariantTimeToSystemTime(myDate, &mySysTime);

int year = mySysTime.wYear;

etc.
