I would say that you can't.  You will probably need to get additional information to help decide.


You might say that 201433 could only be divided into 2014-3-3, but perhaps the missing digit is a 1 or a 2 instead of a 0.  Then the intended value could be 2014-03-13 or 2014-03-23.  Or perhaps the 4 is the typo and it is really in ddmmyy format so that the intended value is really 1933-12-20.
