Script step to remove date?

Hello,

In Scriptmaker, I'd like to insert a line in a script to remove a date from a date field. I would think I should use the "Set Field" script step, specify the date field I want to clear, and then enter "". However the calculation result must be a date so the field displays a "?" How can I rewrite this to simply get the date field to be empty?

Thanks.

Keep in mind that the field must be present on a layout in which the Clear[] script-step is activated (at least in vs. 7). Otherwise it won't clear the field. I don't believe this is documented in FM Help either ...

A straight Set Field [ dateField ; "" ] works in vs 7/8 now. It's a wonderful improvement over prior versions.

AnyDate is my sample date field name. You would just substitute the name of your own Date Field for it.

The only reason that this [color:red]Would Not work, is if the field is not on the layout that you're on when using the script. (see LaRetta post )
