Hi,

I have 2 arrays

$dates
Array
(
    [0] => 2016-11-01
    [1] => 2016-11-08
    [2] => 2016-11-15
    [3] => 2016-11-22
    [4] => 2016-11-29
)

$holidays
Array
(
    [0] => 2016-11-07
    [1] => 2016-11-08
    [2] => 2016-11-09
    [3] => 2016-11-10
    [4] => 2016-11-11
)

$totals =  array_diff($dates, $termtimedates) . '<br><br>';
			
			echo $totals . '<br><br>';

Open in new window


All I get back is word "Array"

Any ideas thanks

When your script uses echo to print out an array, PHP unhelpfully substitutes the value "Array."  Try using print_r($totals) instead.

This happens any time PHP does type-coercion from Array to String (not just in echo).  It's a terrible design flaw, but it's too late to fix it now that it's been baked into the language.  A more appropriate approach would be to trigger a warning!
