HI Experts,

I need a webpage with js in it so users can put in a normal date for it to be converted to JULIAN/ORDINAL in the format of YY/DDD

I have had a look online but cant find one in this format.

Please see attachment for example.

Any help would be appreciated,

Thanks

Without an attachment, it's difficult to know exactly what you're after, but....

<html>
<head>
<title>Date Conversion</title>
<script type="text/javascript" language="javascript">
    function GtoJ(formName) {
		var monthGreg = parseInt(formName[0].value);
		var dayGreg = parseInt(formName[1].value);
		var yearGreg = parseInt(formName[2].value);

		var dateStamp = new Date().setFullYear(yearGreg, monthGreg, dayGreg);
		var d = new Date();
		var first = new Date().setFullYear(2013,0,1);
		var theDay = Math.round(((dateStamp - first) / 1000 / 60 / 60 / 24) + .5, 0);
		var julian = (String(yearGreg).substring(4, 2) + "/" + theDay);
		formName[4].value = julian;
}
</script>
</head>
    <body>
        <form name="calForm" action="">
