BDC date format


I need a clarification here.

When we deal with date, normally we convert it into external format of user by using 'WRITE TO' statement.

But in my current program, it does not have any format conversions for date. However, they are uploading to BDC structure in YYYYMMDD basic internal format.

I heard it like, if u supply date with this internal format, it just get converted to specific user format on the screen.( Suppose if user format mm/dd/yyyy, if u spply in YYYYMMDD. Then it will convert to mm/DD/YYYY automatically)

Is this true??

Because the same program working properly on PRD system and in QAT it is throwing date format error.

Can any pls confirm...
