I have a form that tracks when employees need to renew their licenses, they generally know when to renew when the finaldate document is done. The date could be 03/18/00 so that means that the renewal date should be 03/31/02, so the renwal date will be every 2 years at the end of the month. I need the database to track that for me, I cant have repeating values in my tables so I have it set up as
what I have so far in a query is First_renewal: =DateSerial(Year([FinalSuit_date])+2,Month([Finalsuit_date]),Day([Finalsuit_date])) and the I have Secon_date, third...etc with the same code
this code calculates the dates so that its at the end of the month every two years. But if theres no date in the final suit date then you get an #error# so I am wondering if this is the best way of doing this???
[1st] the Time Line interval
[2nd] is the
so for each license (Work Skill) would be a
[1st] = yyyy [2nd] = 2
Know all i needed know is the Last time the license (Work Skill) was set
from that date I can do a
nexttime = Dateadd([1st],[2nd],[datelastdone])
then if nexttime was within the month the Bells would Ring
I had even put warning time in the license (Work Skill) table
once person done license (Work Skill) i would update [datelastdone]
with todays date also write it to the history table
doing it this way
I can have differance license (Work Skill) time Line
[1st] = m [2nd] = 6
[1st] = m [2nd] = 24
hope this helps
look in help under datediff or dateadd
