Try this

Dim NextTime As Date = Now        ' Current date and time.
NextTime = NextTime.AddDays(3.4)  ' Increment by 3 2/5 days.

Did you look at the dateAdd-function. You can add 1 day (interval = d, number = 1) or subtract one (interval = d, number = -1)

Hi, in VB6, you use DateAdd:

To get one day subtracted:
dteNewDate = DateAdd("d", -1, Now)

To get one day added:
dteNewDate = DateAdd("d", 1, Now)

Regards,

Rob.

You can also try this code
Dim Msg, Number, StartDate As String   'Declare variables.
Dim Months As Double
Dim SecondDate As Date
Dim IntervalType As DateInterval
IntervalType = DateInterval.day   ' Specifies months as interval.
StartDate = InputBox("Enter a date")
SecondDate = CDate(StartDate)
Number = InputBox("Enter number of days to add/subtract")
days = Val(Number)
Msg = "New date: " & DateAdd(IntervalType, days, SecondDate)
MsgBox(Msg)

Open in new window
