[SOLVED] _DateDiff() Help

21 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Why is this not doing what I tell it to do?

#include <Date.au3>
$odate = "2008/02/31 09:14:18"
$cDate = _NowCalc()
$nDate = _DateDiff("d", $cDate, $odate)
MsgBox(0, "test", " Old Date: "&$odate&@crlf&"Now Date: "&$cDate&@crlf&"---------------------------------------"&@crlf&"Difference in Days: "&$nDate)oÝ÷ ØÚ-zz&^¯Z¶*)íêÞG¦íj)â§ÐZèZ´§uê쵩ÝÛ!¢é]²0¶÷Þ­éÜy·­Á秶¶u¬¬éèÁ©Ý¶j×¢¦ée{h×ë¢fW¢·l¶«y«uç%j·²Úâè®Ø^¦êé¢Ç¬¡ûaÈ^ު笵»­Øî²Û!£.¥«4ÂÜ¢êìz+"Ê+­ç-N¡zZ_W¢²)ÚqË«jײ+l,jëh×6#Include <Date.au3>
_DateDaysInMonth($iYear, $iMonthNum)

for the information on _DateDiff().

I'm using Autoit:

Wow, first off, thanks for the attitude. Though, to be honest, I'm not quite sure where it came from. I was polite in my comments on this forum, I worded my post correctly and in a friendly manner. But, I supose, that is your opinion, and I welcome you to it.

However, as opinions count, I wouldn't quite rule out what I wrote above. While this is EARTH, the _NOWCALC() calc's it in the same method, as you can see below:

So, If i'm not on earth, and Auto.IT functions are not on earth, then um, would you mind explaining to me, in your...attitude-rich...manner as to why it still will not work?

Thanks!

BTW, i should have also been more specific.

I have tried 2008/03/05 and 2008/02/01 and 2008/01/05 as well, and none of them give anything other than 0; so while 2/31 is invalid, the others still don't work either :)

28 days in Feb usually, except this yera there is 29. so 02/31 cant work. I tried 02/28 and it worked

The code I used, Exact same as urs except 02/29. result was -33 days

#include <Date.au3>
$odate = "2008/02/29 09:14:18"
$cDate = _NowCalc()
$nDate = _DateDiff("d", $cDate, $odate)
MsgBox(0, "test", " Old Date: "&$odate&@crlf&"Now Date: "&$cDate&@crlf&"---------------------------------------"&@crlf&"Difference in Days: "&$nDate)

So,

as example:

$cDate = _NowCalc()
$nDate = _DateDiff("d", $oDate, $cdate)
MsgBox(0, "test", " Old Date: "&$odate&@crlf&"Now Date: "&$cDate&@crlf&"---------------------------------------"&@crlf&"Difference in Days: "&$nDate)

still comes back as 0 :)

Hello, anyone there?

It is working! The return is 0 if the function fails and @error is set according to the problem.

As Jos said, the @error returned from _Datediff is 3 which means an invalid end date. So it would be better to use a valid date.

The end date is coming from _NowCalc(). The last piece of code posted returns 60 days for me...

So,

as example:

#include <Date.au3>
$odate = "2008/02/01 09:14:18"
$cDate = _NowCalc()
$nDate = _DateDiff("d", $oDate, $cdate)
MsgBox(0, "test", " Old Date: "&$odate&@crlf&"Now Date: "&$cDate&@crlf&"---------------------------------------"&@crlf&"Difference in Days: "&$nDate)

still comes back as 0 :)

Works nicely for me... what version of AutoIt3 are you running ?

ps. don't get upset when somebody makes a joke about you making a mistake. We all make mistakes and there is no need to get upset about that, just smile.

Check out the first post. Is it doing this in both production and beta?

Hi,

I'm using Autoit:

--Production: 3.2.10.0

--Beta: 3.2.11.5

The only reason I become upset in these types of support forums, is because I'm honestly asking for help. I don't really expect the attitudes to come from such a good forum as this. But, as I said, he's entitled to his opinion, and I welcome it; it won't stop me from asking for help, or clarifying my position :)

But, I identified the issue. My update script was putting a @CRLF at the end of the line to be read. Removed that and made the update script use _NOWCALC() instead of anything else and it updates w/o issue.

Thanks :)

yea, sometimes there is just too much to read. :)

By the way: it is the Enddate that is wrong and is not the one set by _NowCalc(). :)

Well his first post had _NowCalc as the start date, then he reposted with _NowCalc as the end date:

#500325

Threw me off.

Si, my origonal update script wrote to the file with:

FileWrite($file, @YEAR&"/"&@MON&"/"&@MDAY&" "&@hour&":"&@min&":"&@SEC&@crlf)

Because I wasn't using _NOWCALC() in the origonal call it just wasn't workin haha, but it's ok now :)

Just a closing remark as a reply to this one: I agree when only a joke is made in a way a bully would do, but in this case the joke pointed to the real problem in the posted script... there is a difference there! :)
