Thanks for all the responses so far.

To answer Sandi's question:

The intended audience electronic data interchange (EDI) systems people in hospitals and other health care provider offices. The term is used in a HIPAA ANSI X12 implementation guide. A guide designed to allow those EDI people to format their submission files so they can continue doing business with us when our new HIPAA compliant systems go live.

I'm even more concerned now seeing that YYJJJ seems to be the more normal convention for Julian date than the JJJYY I've been instructed to include in the manual.

I think I'll have to avoid the term Julian all together and just spell out what we want in the date field.

Thanks again for all the responses.
