work with end number

work with end number

work with end number

Hello gang, I hope all is well in your world.

I want to be able to work with the end digit in the days of the year, and have an if/then to make it be a nd, st, rd, ect.

So it would read "This is the 222nd day of the year."
I have the code to get the day of the year using


I just need to add the suffix variable somehow.

Any ideas??

RE: work with end number

How about;

CODE --> vBscript

Function addOrdinalString(p_iVal)
  sNum = cStr(p_iVal)
  iNum = p_iVal mod 10
  select case iNum
    case 1
      sOrd = "st"
    case 2
      sOrd = "nd"
    case 3
      sOrd = "rd"
    case else '4,5,6,7,8,9,0
      sOrd = "th"
  end select
  ' deal with the teens
    if p_iVal > 10 and p_iVal <20 then sOrd = "th"
  sNum = sNum & sOrd
  addOrdinalString = sNum
End Function 

It was only intended to handle 1 to 31 (for obvious reasons) but should tweak for > 100 upwards with a bit of code to strip off the first character (the hundreds) from p_iVal if > 99, add the ordinal, then concatenate the leading character back on.

I would do that myself but I don't have a Windows machine to test on, plus it's 4:AM and I'm running on tea and Ginger Nuts.
