Hi all,

date question in lotus formula language

On the form,
I have startdate datetime field with the following value = @created
I have a lifecyle number field with a default value of 1
I have enddate datetime field with the following fromula @Adjust(startdate;lifecycle;0;0;0;0;0)

& that's all working fine

Question,

I want to the startdate field to have the year portion as a dynamic portion, this way the dates relating to it will always have the current year in place.

For example,

startdate = [01/03] + @year(@now)
Where the value of the startdate will be 01/03/2007 if the year is 2007 and 01/03/2008 if the year is 2008.
I have tried many combination of @text & @texttotime to get the startdate to work properly but it wouldn't. as well as the enddate always give me an eror for incorrect data type.
Any help is much appreciated.

Question, if the startdate is @Created, or the date/year it was created, won't the year always be correct?

I think all that you need to do is use the Format command or change your views/fields to show the year as part of the date.

I hope this helps !

I'm not sure what you are trying to accomplish, but the correct way to construct a date is with the @Date function.

@Date( year ; month ; day )
@Date( year ; month ; day ; hour ; minute ; second )
@Date( time-date )

Ex:
startdate := @Date(@Year(@Now); 1; 3);
