Convert a date string to a Clipper date data type


      FT_STOD( <cDateStr> ) -> dDateType


     <cDateStr> is a Clipper string in the format "CCYYMMDD".


     A Clipper date type.


     This function allows the programmer to hard code a date into the
     program without knowing what the current date type is.  This
     function is the converse of the Clipper DTOS() function.


     LOCAL dMyDate
     dMyDate := FT_STOD( "19901127" )
