me:  Win 2003
Perry? 10.2? 10.3?  Redhat?

I'd sure like to know what makes the difference.
I'd hate to get bit - again! - in a migration or upgrade.
The worst fall-out I ever had in an upgrade was when they changed an obscure FMT code without telling anyone.

If not flavor, then hardware/os?

On my UV10.2.10 it behaves properly only with [2'',2''], as Richard&
Perry describe.

    OCONV( "16187", "DYMD['','']" )   = "2012425"
    OCONV( "16187", "DYMD[2'',2'']" ) = "120425"

Like Rick, I find flavor does not matter.

That was my thought, but the flavor does not seem to affect it on my version.

Or maybe it's my Pick flavor.

That must be a change at UV 11.  10.2.x still produces 2 digit months and
days without the extra 2’s.

On UV 11.1.3 this leaves single-digit months as a single digit.

OCONV(TODAY, 'DYMD[2"",2"",2]') does the job correctly.  The brackets
format modifiers to the parameters that follow the D conversion code, in
this case, 'YMD'.  The 2's specifiy how many characters to display, and
empty quotes specify the 'text' with which to separate the elements.
There's about 80 lines that describe it when you do HELP CONV D at TCL.

Or, a bit more simply:

OCONV(TODAY, "D2YMD[‘’ , ’’]”)
