How to output previous days date in mm/dd/yy format

5 posts in this topic

We have tried to use the DateAdd function and the DateFormat function to do this, but it doesn't seem to work.

Would appreciate any help.

Here you go:

#Include <Date.au3>

Global $aDate, $aTime

_DateTimeSplit(_DateAdd("D", -1, _NowCalcDate()), $aDate, $aTime)

ConsoleWrite(StringFormat( "%02s/%02s/%04s", $aDate[2], $aDate[3], $aDate[1]) & @CRLF)


Any of my own code posted anywhere on the forum is available for use by others without any restriction of any kind._______My UDFs:


ArrayMultiColSort ---- Sort arrays on multiple columns
ChooseFileFolder ---- Single and multiple selections from specified path treeview listing
Date_Time_Convert -- Easily convert date/time formats, including the language used
ExtMsgBox --------- A highly customisable replacement for MsgBox
GUIExtender -------- Extend and retract multiple sections within a GUI
GUIFrame ---------- Subdivide GUIs into many adjustable frames
GUIListViewEx ------- Insert, delete, move, drag, sort, edit and colour ListView items
GUITreeViewEx ------ Check/clear parent and child checkboxes in a TreeView
Marquee ----------- Scrolling tickertape GUIs
NoFocusLines ------- Remove the dotted focus lines from buttons, sliders, radios and checkboxes
Notify ------------- Small notifications on the edge of the display
Scrollbars ----------Automatically sized scrollbars with a single command
StringSize ---------- Automatically size controls to fit text
Toast -------------- Small GUIs which pop out of the notification area

Thanks Melba and Muncher, we got it before we saw your replies!

#include <Date.au3>

$NowDate = _DateAdd( 'd',-1, _NowCalcDate())

$sNewDate = _DateTimeFormat($NowDate,2)

You're supposed to post here for help if you're really stuck with something. Not if you're gonna figure it out 10 minutes later ...
