Following on from my previous post, I have another totally unrelated question. I am trying to create a form, into which the user will enter a date. I want to then take that date and calculate from it what the start date of the week in which the entered date falls into. For example, if the week start day is Monday, and todays date is entered, a date of 29/03/04 will be returned. If I enter next Thursdays date (8th April), a date of 25/03/04 will be returned. Ideally, I wish to have control over what the start day for a given week is. TIA Gary

Hi Gary You’ll need to use the CALCDATE command e.g. StartofWeek := CALCDATE(’<-CW>’,WORKDATE);
Perfect thank you. I’m still finding my way around extracting information out of the help!
