Obviously you need the year, because 249 is different when it is a leap year and when not, right??

function DayOfYear(dayNum: integer; year: Word = 0): TDateTime;
var
  m,d: Word;
begin
  if year = 0 then
    DecodeDate(Now, year,m,d);
  Result := EncodeDate(year,1,1)-1+dayNum;
end;

ShowMessage(FormatDateTime('yyyy-mm-dd', DayOfYear(249)));

why not look in the DateUtils unit next time ?

There is the incday function which should be the easiest

Result := IncDay(EncodeDate(year, 1, 1), daynum-1);

How is your line

Result := IncDay(EncodeDate(year, 1, 1), daynum-1);

different to my line

Result := EncodeDate(year,1,1)-1+dayNum;

which skips the function and uses floating point register directly.
The other content of the function is only to default to current year.

Unless there is some magic to IncDay that I am not aware of?
