Everybody is talking about data-centric programming these days. But what is it, and what can it do for, and to, you?

Every once in a while, we see a flurry of articles about one particular topic. It blazes forth like a flaming Molotov cocktail, gets tossed up in the air for everyone to see, and then seems to explode in a cloud of smoke. It’s 15 minutes over, the topic quietly goes about the rest of its life, sometimes fading into insignificance and other times taking its place in the hallowed pantheon of IBM i concepts.
This webinar highlights real-world examples of PHP applications that have contributed strategically to IBM i organizations by generating revenue, improving business processes and increasing productivity.
After last time’s functions for extracting information from a date, I’ll look into some real date math, with functions that perform some neat tricks.

It’s now time to let the system do the so-called “date math” for you. This is an easy task in SQL because there are several intuitive functions to help. Let’s start with ADD_MONTHS. This function has two parameters: a valid date representation and the number of months to add. Here’s an example:

TLAForms by TL Ashford converts your traditional IBM i spool files into high quality, professional forms.
Use a GUI Designer to create forms using data from a spool file and data from your IBM i files. Forms can be designed with true-type fonts, bar codes – including QR Code and Datamatrix, color images, overlays, lines, boxes and ellipses all in full color.
The software generates your forms as PDF documents that are archived to the IFS, automatically emailed and/or printed. Forms can be printed to IBM i PostScript printers, any printer connected to the network, or any printer connected to a PC. IFS locations, email addresses, and printers can be variable based on data within the spool file, data within the IBM i file or spool file attributes.
No programming is required to generate the new forms from your existing ERP, WMS or in-house application software.
The experienced TL Ashford technical support team will provide any pre-designed templates like the VICS Bill of Lading, and make sure working with the software is as easy and productive as possible!
