How to compare the dates

How to compare the dates

How to compare the dates


I wonder if anyone knows how to compare the dates. What I need to is the following:

I need to count difference in number of months from the start date to the current month.

Suppose, my start date was April 2002 and the current date is May 2003, then I need to come up with the number 15 as a difference between these two months.

Please help


RE: How to compare the dates

You have two possibilities. One is using Formula language, with the simple sustraction of two date/time fields. Note that the result is in seconds, so calculate accordingly.
The other solution is to use LotusScript. Create two NotesDateTime items and use the TimeDifference method.
You'll find all the info you need in the Designer Help.
