Search the archives. I think Sarah wrote a julian date converter, but the problem is that the Julian date can mean several things depending on the source.

Windows uses Visual Basic, and I don't have the foggiest clue about that, except to say that to launch a visual basic script saved as a file on the hard disk, you can use a shell command:
If you know Visual Basic and they have a conversion for dates, you can give that a shot.
