4 posts in this topic

Hey guys,

I am learning this kewl new tool. I basically have a two button interface which when I click on launch changes the year to a fixed date, launches a program then changes the date back to the original date. All I need to change is year. Can anyone give me an example on how to do this codewise and please remember I am just learning thanks.... ;)

pls post a .small. code snippet demonstrating what you are trying to do.

W/o a better description of what you want to accomplish, the sections in the manual dealing

w/ StringReplace() and/or StringFormat() may be of interest to you.


Reading the help file before you post... Not only will it make you look smarter, it will make you smarter.

u could always:

$f = InputBox("Date Changer","Enter new date DD-MM-YY","")
_RunDOS("date "&$f)

Thank you for your reply, I believe I ended up just doing that. Running the dos window, sending the date command and then closing the app.

Thanks again :)
