Dates Comparison


I am having difficulties comparins the dates.

Here is what I do and it does not work:

 If doc.PLAN_INSTL_DATE(0) < 11/01/2001 Then
            'do something

Even if doc.PLAN_INSTL_DATE is before 11/01/2001, script jumps to the ELSE condition.

Please help.

RE: Dates Comparison

Is your field PLAN_INSTL_DATE a NotesDateTime field?  


There are 10 types of people in the world -
those who understand binary
those who don't!

RE: Dates Comparison

The best way to compare dates in LScript is to use NotesDateTime objects.

try the following code :

dim docdate as notesdatetime
dim checkdate as notesdatetime

set checkdate = new notesdatetime("11/01/2001")
set docdate = new notesdatetime(doc.PLAN_INSTL_DATE(0))
If docdate.dateonly < checkdate.dateonly Then
            'do something

This should help you.
