STATUS:IIF([The_Date]<= GetDate() AND IsNull([STATUS]),"Write",[STATUS])

I have a vba module with function,


or if I could get it to work just by using SQL

Function GetDate()

   dim a 

    a = weekday(now(),vbmonday)

    a = int(now())-a

    a = GetDate

End Function

Open in new window

your function's last line is wrong:
Function GetDate()
   dim a 
    a = weekday(now(),vbmonday)
    a = int(now())-a
    GetDate = a
End Function

Open in new window

Sorry you are right i re-wrote the function incorrectly [only here ((-:]  but is there anything else which seems wrong.

you might set the data type to date:
Function GetDate() as Date

   dim a 

    a = weekday(now(),vbmonday)

    a = int(now())-a

    GetDate = a

End Function
