Hi,

I've adopted "DateDifference" custom function by Brian Dunning, created and tested working perfect in FM Adv 8.5. However, it doesn't work when I hosted it with FMServer 8 and accessed by FM8 Pro clients. But the same hosted database works fine in FM Adv 8.5.

Please help.

Thanks,

Garu

It may use FMP functions that require FMP 8.5.

All of my solutions have a startup script that checks the FMP client version and prevents the file from being used in a too-old version. This was done after I spent an hour with a client trying to de-bug problems in new work I had done, only to realise that they were using FMP 7.0 and the file used FMP 8.5 features.

I just checked the CF and it does not seem to have anything that requires FMP 8.5. However any calculation that tries to express a date period as a number of years, months and days is by design doomed to failure because months and years are not constant quantities.

There are many discussions of this on the FM Forums. All are very entertaining.
