Calculating the date of the following Monday

3 posts in this topic

Hi! This is my first post in this forum. I've been learining AutoIT gradually for the past 4 months writing automation scripts, one with a GUI for remote suppot. Now I've hit my first problem which i can't work out from the help files....

Our helpdesk system is a bit of a pain in the jacksee, so to make the job a bit easier when suspending a call I automated part of it in a script. Now I want to make it a bit more dynamic by getting the date of Monday on the following week.

I'm guessing it's along the lines of working out the week number based on the current date/time then getting the following Monday's date by advancing the week number, but the date functions are still giving me headaches.

Anyone with a greater knowledge of the date functions able to help me out here?

Thank you in advance.

AHA! Thank you for your help > take the date, add 7 days then remove the ISO day number = works out the monday date.

One of those things where you can't see the forest for the trees. Thanks again!
