Need to repeat current record by a week or month

Need to repeat current record by a week or month

I am trying to create a transport booking system which allows the user to enter a repeat booking. i.e every week or every month, any suggestions?

RE: Need to repeat current record by a week or month

not a whole lot to go on here, but the basic approach would be to set up an input to select the interval (daily, weekly, monthly) and use dateadd(interval, 1, startdate in a loop.  Look up the arguments for the dateadd function, interval is day, week, month, etc (not the correct codes, but the "information", startdate is - obviously - when to start the process.

Do this in the loop which runs for the number of intervals desired.  You will probably want to also limit the actual schedualing in some manner, so you can keep from going out to infinity.

Another approach would be similar, but include a "flag" in the schedual, which is to "notify" the system to 'reschedual' thiitem when it's date occurs.  This would perpetuate the item until some one removed the flag.

There is never time to do it right but there is always time to do it over
