Easy date handling?

I'm working on a system that requires alot of date handling, and i'm getting
pretty tired of doing custom calculating when modifying dates, so i hope
someone would be able to help me.
Is there any easy way to do re-calculating of dates? such as adding 2,11
or 36 months to a date, and have it automatically checking whether or not
it should increase months or year, and by how much?

Like, if i have to add 11 months to the date right now, i have to check which
month it's in to see whether or not i could just take one month lesser the
next year and so on...
It's hard to descreibe, but i hope you got the point. Thanks.

I was pretty sure there should be a function for it - stupid me for not checking
the vb reference first.
My appologies and thank you very much for the help, i appreciate it.

Indeed. Before asking the NG, check www.google.com first. Or
www.w3schools.com or www.aspFaq.com

Hi all. Handling files is an extremely frequent task in programming, so most programming languages have an abstraction of the basic files offered by the underlying operating system. This is indeed also true for our language of choice, Python. Its file type allows some extraordinary convenient access like: for line in open("blah"): handle_line(line)

We have some date fields in our HTML forms in various places. In the accounts package we use, there is some pretty nifty date handling. It has a standardised date format of dd/mm/yyyy and if you enter e.g. 3-12 it will switch it to 3/12/2005 Same applies for e.g. 3:12 etc Anyone know of some javascript which will do this for our HTML form

For an all-numeric Gregorian date to be intrinsically unambiguous, it must generally be of the form /\d{3,}\D+\d+\D+\d+/ ; and we've discussed handling that. But if the month is given in letters (in full, as a LTA, or as Roman numerals) , then the date is unambiguous if the value of the year field is greater than the greatest possible day field value - in which case the year value is greater than the actual day value - whatever...

We commonly use triggers to log changes to our main tables to historical log tables. In the trigger, we create a concatenated string of the old values by casting them as follows: CAST(O.MYDATE AS CHAR(30)) When directly updating date fields in the main table, the logged value gets saved in the format YYYY-MM-DD as expected.

Access seems to be handling a date string conversion inconsistently in an append query. The query converts a YYYYMM string into a date, using the following function: CDate(Right(,2) & "/1/" & Left(,4)) I entered the string "200715" in a record to test an error condition.

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>". The problem is that using the GNU compilers, it seems that the internal comparison operator "<=>" tries to promote arguments from unsigned to signed. This is as boiled down as I can make it. Here is my compilation command: g++-12 -std=c++20 -Wnarrowing bit_field.cpp Here is the code in...
