# Re: [U2] End of Month date routine

```Your method is also the way I've always done it, but an alternate method
just came to mind:```
```
MONTH = OCONV(DATE, 'DM')
YEAR = OCONV(DATE, 'D Y[Z4]')
LEAP = MOD(YEAR, 4) = 0
MONTHS = ''
MONTHS<1> = 31
MONTHS<2> = 28 + LEAP
MONTHS<3> = 31
MONTHS<4> = 30
MONTHS<5> = 31
MONTHS<6> = 30
MONTHS<7> = 31
MONTHS<8> = 31
MONTHS<9> = 30
MONTHS<10> = 31
MONTHS<11> = 30
MONTHS<12> = 31
LAST.DAY = MONTHS<MONTH>

Not very concise, but you can tell at a glance how many days your
dealing with.

Someone has probably already suggested one like this but I use:

DATE = ICONV("2-11-11",'D')
MONTH = OCONV(DATE,"DM")
YEAR = OCONV(DATE,"DY")
MONTH += 1
IF MONTH > 12 THEN
MONTH = 1
YEAR += 1
END

LAST.DAY = ICONV(MONTH:"/1/":YEAR,'D')-1
