While processing older data history, I came across a case where instead of the date there was only a number 20:
2,@ES#,MD01,3210.25,3210.5,178,99,15:59:13.253701,20,52,15:59:13.223699,T,T,T,

For example, one of the previous messages before this one was as expected:
2,@ES#,MD01,3210.25,3210.5,177,99,15:59:13.187790,2020-07-28,52,15:59:13.223699,T,T,T,

as we can see, there is a date in the correct format: 2020-07-28.

Data were obtained using protocol 6.1. If I look at the documentation on L2 update message for protocol 6.1:
https://www.iqfeed.net/dev/api/docs/docs61/Level2UpdateSummaryMessage.cfm
There is a date format CCYY-MM-DD exactly at the position of the occurrence of the number 20.

Can you please correct me if I missed something in the documentation?

This looks like an error. The date should be a complete date. I'll escalate it to the dev team.

Are you running the latest version of the IQFeed client software? As far as we know, this kind of behavior should no longer be happening in the current version (6.2.0.25). You can get it from https://www.iqfeed.net/dev/api.cfm.
