CL PROGRAM TO CONVERT QDATE

I need a simple CL program to convert the current date (QDATE) into the format YYYYMMDD that I can store in a text file.
The existing code is extracting a 2 digit year.

Thanks

Use CVTDAT to convert the retrieved QDATE value from *SYSVAL format to *YYMD format, or retrieve QDATETIME instead (20A) and substring out the first 8 characters.
