Increment month or year depending on if it is a new year or what have you.



 Public Function IncrementDate(ByVal DtPeriod As String, ByVal IncrementAmount As Integer) As String



        End Function
     

        Public Function GetBusinessCalendarPeriod(ByVal dbName As String, ByVal DatePeriod As String, ByVal txtMaxPeriod As String) As DataTable

            Dim retVal As New DataTable("BusinessCalendars")
            Dim DtPeriod As String = DatePeriod
            Dim MaxPeriod As Integer = Int32.Parse(txtMaxPeriod)
            Dim cmd As DbCommand
            Dim tmpds As DataSet
            Dim StoredProcName As String = String.Empty



            'We get the divisions
            For Index As Integer = 0 To MaxPeriod - 1
                StoredProcName = dbName & ".dbo.usp_GetDatePeriodFromTo"
                cmd = dbManager.GetStoredProcCommand(StoredProcName)

                dbManager.AddInParameter(cmd, "@YEARMONTH", DbType.String, DtPeriod)
                IncrementDate(DtPeriod, Index + 1) ' Increment by one month.

                'Temporarilly put the results in a dataset so we can check for valid data
                tmpds = dbManager.ExecuteDataSet(cmd)
            Next

        End Function

Why not use the built in functionality?

Date objects have AddMonths and AddYears built onto them.

Is what a string?

The functions work on datetime objects... if your date is in a string, then you convert to a datetime, apply the function, and can even .ToString() back if needed

Example:

Dim dateString As String = "3/3/2007"
Dim myDate As DateTime = Convert.ToDateTime(dateString)
myDate.AddMonths(3)
myDate.ToString
0
