Hello experts

I have two fields
ScheduledDaysAll - Date/Time, Computed, I'm doing a dblookup here to get multiple Dates from other documents. (e.g. 08/03/2006, 08/04/2006, 08/05/2006)

StartDate - Date/Time, @If(@IsMember(StartDate;@TextToTime(ScheduledDaysAll));@Failure("An existing modules is covering this day !");@Success)

When I select any date in StartDate, I get this message.. 'Incorrect data type for operator or @function: Text expected'

I'm trying to prevent users to select those dates/days which are already exists in ScheduledDaysAll

Hi, you are passing a date-time value to the functin @TextToTime(), which expects a string to be its parameter

Hi Harish

I've tried it without texttotime, but I get the same error

@If(@IsMember(StartDate;ScheduledDaysAll);@Failure("An existing modules is covering this day !");@Success)

Try @Text(date) around both instead.

You're getting the error on the lookup function, it needs to return text for the @Contains or @IsMember to work

Try this:
TextValue:=@If(EnterDate="";"";@Text(enterdate;"D0S0"));
ChkList:=@If(chkdate="";"";@Text(chkdate;"D0S0"));
@If(TextValue=""|ChkList="";@Return("");"");
Result:=@If(@Contains(ChkList;TextValue);"Is Member";"Not a Member");
@If(@IsError(Result);"Error";Result)

The dblookup:
List:=@DbColumn("":"";@DbName;"LookupDates";1);
@If(@IsError(List)|List="";"";@Unique(@Text(List;"D0S0")))

I'm sorry, did we not answer your question correctly?  I created a test environment before I posted?!  Could you tell us why the grade is a B?
