Hi,

there is no special function which returns the number of days in the month. But you can easily make a loop until the date pass to the next month.

Private Function NbDays(ByVal iMonth As Integer, _
                                     ByVal iYear As Integer) As Integer
Dim i As Integer
Dim MyDate As Date

MyDate = CDate("28/" & Format(iMonth) & "/" & Format(iYear))

' Loop for the 29, 30 and 31
For i = 1 To 4
    If Val(Format(MyDate, "mm")) > iMonth Then
        NbDays = 26 + i
        Exit Function
    End If
    MyDate = MyDate + 1
Next i

NbDays = 31

End Function

e_aks,

You can use the following function as a General Procedure:

Public Function LastOfMonth(Optional vdatBase As Variant, Optional viOffset As Variant) As Date

       Dim datBase As Date
       Dim iOffset As Integer

              If Not IsMissing(vdatBase) Then
                      datBase = CDate(vdatBase)
              Else
                      datBase = Date
              End If


              If Not IsMissing(viOffset) Then
                      iOffset = CInt(viOffset)
              Else
                      iOffset = 0
              End If

       LastOfMonth = DateSerial(Year(datBase), Month(datBase) + iOffset + 1, 0)
End Function

to get the last day of each month try:

msgbox LastOfMonth(now) 'will return "30 June 1998"
