Convert Date to Number

Description

This part enables the user to split a date object into its separate components: year, month, day, hour, minute, and seconds. 

Use

The Convert Date to Number part takes a date object or a date in the YYYYMMDD.HHmmSS format and splits it into individual objects. The system stores the individual objects together under the data object name the user assigns; for example, if the user names the data object my_datenumber_object, the system will create objects named as follows: 

- my_datenumber_object.year
- my_datenumber_object.month
- my_datenumber_object.day
- my_datenumber_object.hours
- my_datenumber_object.minutes
- my_datenumber_object.seconds
