Hello,
This is what I have been using for a while and it worked no problem but suddenly it stopped working, I think maybe my host might have configured something.

<% ' adds 28 days to date,
Dim nonactivedate
nonactivedate = DateAdd("d", 28, Now())
 %>


I want to add 28 days to todays date, I am using asp page and a ms 2005 sql database.

is there anything I can do to correct this.

this is the error

"The conversion of a char data type to a datetime data type resulted in an out-of-range datetime value. "

regards and thank you

how do you use that value in your query?
apart from that, why not use

DATEADD(day, 28, GETDATE())

in your query directly?

that won't work, as the dateadd() function in vbscript and sql is different...

anyhow, that does not show the relevant sql part?

angel thank you

I use dreamweaver and an update behaviour, I have a table with 14 odd columns but it is only the date column on this ocassion needs updating. I would prefer to grab the value from a hidden field as it has always worked before but for the life of me cannot understand what has changed lately.
