Date Problem

Date Problem

Date Problem

Hi everyone, I have a date format problem. I need to format year in the following manner everything seems to be fine except setting YEAR=YEAR+1

concatenating here for querying
...my query

have to add reset value of year to year+1 tried  both
gave me an error abt conversion from alaphanumeric to numeric.
Any ideas ?

RE: Date Problem



the dash (-) in the first column tells Focus that this is a Dialogue Manager command.


RE: Date Problem

If you are using a define when you try to add 1 to the Year, it won't work since YEAR is an alpha field.  You would need to change it to an Integer field first.
