The date value retuned by umAlQuraCalendar is not in the range of AX / 365 TransDate allowed. TransDate support from 1/1/1900 to 1/1/2155. You might be noticed Never as dateMax() value in AX tables, All those never is nothing but 1/1/2155.

Please find following script to convert Gregorian to Hijri with date separator “-“.

I got an requirment to convert the date where Integrating system is not accepts 29-4-1442, API is looking for 29-04-1442

yearStr = umAlQuraCalendar.GetYear(_transDate);

monthStr = umAlQuraCalendar.GetMonth(_transDate);

dayOfMonthStr = umAlQuraCalendar.GetDayOfMonth(_transDate);
