Hello

I have a text field with a date in it

I.E. 12/30/1987

I would like to have a field called weekahead with the date of 7 days ahead in that field (also a text field)

I would like to have a field called weekbehind with the date of 7 days back in that field (also a text field)

When I try to do it

I get a no formatted number instead of a date.

I need help please

Thanks

Stan

Hi Stan,

You might want to think about changing the text fields to a date fields to start. (Date and Time are special field types in FileMaker, and it makes it easy to manipulate them.) But if that doesn't work for your particular situation for some reason, try

DateToText(TextToDate(Date) + 7)

This will take the text, turn it into a date, add 7, and then turn it back to text. Same for week behind, except -7. I didn't test it, but it should work.
