    Unanswered: Day name from date

    I can't compete with those in the cool examples thread, so I thought I'd post this separately. This file takes the input to a date field and gives you the day of the week. I've used it in many applications. Hope it is useful.

    Don,
    I have tried twice to open that file but my computer tells me that the zipped file is empty... Maybe it is just me. Has anyone else been able to view this file?

    Hi All
    File opens fine for me and BD runs it normally.
    Just as a matter of interest would setting a text field to the formula below work also (gives me the full day name form a date field)?

    Set daytext to [Date^date dddd]

    Regards
    David

    Yes it would, David, had I known that formatting option even existed! Thanks for subtly pointing that out. I always prefer doing things the hard way I guess.

    P.S. Maybe I should read the help file...
