Date conversion

Is there a procedure within EB that will convert Gregorian dates to Julian format?


RE: Date conversion

If your purpose for conversion is to compare dates try this

x = datevalue(somedate$)
y = datevalue(somotherdate$)

then simply compare x and y with < > and =

you can use date formats of

"Jan 1, 2005"
"January 1, 2005"

or you can add and subtract days to determine other dates

x = datevalue(todaysdate$)+7
now x = one week from today

hope this helps

RE: Date conversion

The question was about Gregorian dates to Julian.

I don't know of any conversion for this. You'd have to build it.
