Is this a webpage form? If so see _IEForm* functions in the help file.

Use SciTE or Wordpad instead.

no its not a webpage form. i am exporting a file and its looking for a date range. it will change daily so i need the script to be able to pull the current date and stick it in the form.

Hi Mate,

First of all, I created a file on our PDC called installed.txt and formatted the head as follows...

PC | YYYY/MM/DD | TIME | USER |

=========|============|============|========|

I have the following lines of code in my script to write to this file....

$file = FileOpen("\\server3\scripts$\logs\WLAN\installed.txt", 1)

FileWrite ($file, @Computername & " | " & _NowCalcDate() & " | " &_NowTime() &" | " & @UserName & " |" & @CRLF)
FileClose($file)

This will give you an output like this...

PC | YYYY/MM/DD | TIME | USER |

=======|=========|=======|=====|

WorkPC1 | 2006/07/01 | 2:09:02 PM | spidey |

WorkPC2 | 2006/07/01 | 5:31:35 PM | batman |

I don't have a need to read the file again, but, if you did then perhaps a quick search for "FileRead" and extract what you need there...good luck.

It's your form??

Create an Input control or Label then you can use this to place the date in it.

GuiCtrlSetData($Input1,StringFormat("%s/%s/%s",@MON,@MDAY,@YEAR))
