# Display current Julian Date in web part

Is it possible to display the current 4 digit Julian date (YDDD) at the top of a column above a web part?

I've been trying to google and insert a javascript code in the modify HTML portion when editing the page, but I am not very good at coding.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Little code fragment to assist with conversion to and from Julian date format.

``````public static long ToJulian(DateTime dateTime)
{
int day = dateTime.Day;
int month = dateTime.Month;
int year = dateTime.Year;

if (month < 3)
{
month = month + 12;
year = year - 1;
}

return day + (153 * month - 457) / 5 + 365 * year + (year / 4) - (year / 100) + (year / 400) + 1721119;
}

public static string FromJulian(long julianDate, string format)
{
long L = julianDate + 68569;
long N = (long) ((4*L)/146097);
L = L - ((long)((146097 * N + 3)/4) );
long I = (long) ((4000 *(L + 1)/1461001)) ;
L = L - (long)((1461*I)/4) + 31;
long J = (long)((80*L)/2447);
int Day = (int)(L - (long)((2447*J)/80));
L=(long)(J/11) ;
int Month = (int)(J + 2 - 12*L);
int Year = (int)(100*(N-49) + I + L) ;

// example format "dd/MM/yyyy"
return new DateTime(Year,Month,Day).ToString(format);
}

• Is above solution works for you? – Hardik May 9 '17 at 14:08
• I couldn't get this script to work. I'm far from an expert, but it doesn't seem to follow the same format as the html scripts I see when I edit the page through share point editor. – J-L May 11 '17 at 16:31
• Still no solution on this questions. The answer posted was a copy/paste from yahoo answers. It did not work. – J-L May 23 '17 at 17:38
