# Not receiving correct result from vba code in access 2010

Hi All,

I wrote the below code to calculate an extra day after a term date has been given for an individual.  So if a term date is entered of 12/11/13, I need the result to be 12/12/13.  With this, I've had to modify the code to for months that have 31, 30, and 28 days (we don't count leap year).  I've tried the code out with someone have the termination date of 11/30/13, hoping that it would produce 20131201 but instead it just gives me 20131130.  I'm hoping someone could help me understand why the coding isn't working.  To further understand the code, the ELDENT field is formatted in "CYYMMDD" which is why I add it to 19000000 to get a YYYYMMDD.

``````Public Function fnMbrTerm(ELDENT As Double, ELDETS As Double, RunEnd As Double)

Dim TermCalc As Double

If ((ELDENT > 0) And (ELDETS = 0) And (ELDENT < RunEnd)) Then
TermCalc = ELDENT + 19000000
End If

If Right(TermCalc, 4) = 1231 Then
fnMbrTerm = TermCalc + 8870

ElseIf Right(TermCalc, 4) = ("0131" Or "0331" Or "0531" Or "0731" Or "0831" Or "1031") Then
fnMbrTerm = TermCalc + 70

ElseIf Right(TermCalc, 4) = ("0430" Or "0630" Or "0930" Or "1130") Then
fnMbrTerm = TermCalc + 71

ElseIf Right(TermCalc, 4) = ("0228") Then
fnMbrTerm = TermCalc + 73

Else

fnMbrTerm = TermCalc

End If

If (ELDENT = 0) Then

fnMbrTerm = "00000000"

End If

End Function
``````

If you can extract the day, month and year- just create a DateTime object in your function.  Once you do that, adding a day is super easy (no worries about leap years, days in a month, etc...), so is extracting out the day month and year again.  Looks like this page can give details on how to do that:  http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa227564(v=vs.60).aspx

Thank you for this.  I was also able to figure it out another way.  I realized that when I completed the Right function, that the four positions were not really true because of the leading zero was dropped.  When I scaled back the reference to just the right 3 values it worked like a charm.  I realized that I would never have the same right 3 values a calendar because of the way the months land.

Thank you for this, though.  I will try to incorporate it into my next phase of the project.

Give this a try:

Public Function fnMbrTerm(ELDENT As Double) As String

Dim strFormatted As String

If (ELDENT = 0) Then
fnMbrTerm = "00000000"
Else
ELDENT = ELDENT + 19000000
strFormatted = CStr(ELDENT)
fnMbrTerm = Format\$(DateSerial(Mid(strFormatted, 1, 4), Mid(strFormatted, 5, 2), Mid(strFormatted, 7, 2)) + 1, "YYYYMMDD")
End If

End Function

Jim.

Jim,

Thanks for the response.  I like how concise your formula is, but I need to enter some other variables to ensure that I don't continue to pickup the term.  For example, by having that ELDETS = 0 ensures that it's the first time I'm picking up the term.  After my run, that field is populated with a value and then it is bypassed on the next run the following month.

The weird thing is I was able to figure it out by some adjustment, but I get a weird result when I need the year to change...look at this line of code:

ElseIf Right(TermCalc, 4) = 1231 Then
fnMbrTerm = TermCalc + 8870

All of the other logic applies above.  If you actually do the computation for an ELDENT = 1131231 and then add 19000000 you get 20131231 (the TermCalc result from above).  The four right numbers are 1231.  So I'm saying that the function equal the TermCalc result of 20131231 + 8870 which when you actually add it up equal 20140101 which is the correct answer.  Instead, I'm getting 20131301.  Have any clue why this might be happening?

The first one was great reading on learning how to do such a task of splitting the task.  The second solution was an actual resolve to the problem.
