Problem with @Adjust formula

Hello All

I've been lucky enough to inherit a high profile Notes database from a Polish colleague, and for some strange reason nothing whatsoever seems to work, even when it looks perfectly fine.

I can't seem to replicate it in test but for certain people the following computed field formula sometimes returns the current date without adjusting:-

@Adjust(@Date(@Today);0;0;21;0;0;0)

There's probably no need for the @Date bit but even so I really can't understand why!?!?!?

There's another one that seems most bizare - A user has entered a legtimate name in a sendto field, but the email sendto it generates is erm, a load of crap!!

I think the application was written by chopping and changing between 4.6 and 5, (which I think might explain why there are lots of discrepancies between different Notes versions now) but would this also cause problems similar to the ones mentioned?

Any help, guidance, or ideas would be most appreciated...

Or you really luck with this application ;-)

Indead it's not necessary to use the @Date
The field is it a computed for composed date/time field, with this formula and nothing else, then it should work.
Nothing in the events, translation, querysave .......

So, please first check this all.

For the seocnd question, try to use the notesaddressbooks, and look what he does know.

It's really strange.

I've rechecked the field, and there is nothing else affecting it - that's why it's so strange, the application just seems to generally act funny..
