Hey All --

The solution is eluding me, so I'm hoping it is as simple as I think - I just can't get step one completed.

I've created a variable to set the current date minus 60 days - Get ( CurrentDate ) -60  = $RecordsGreaterThan60

now I wish to use that to find records that are less than the variable and have a second script run on the found records

Enter find mode []

Set Field [mydatefield; < $RecordsGreaterThan60] - but of course this does not work

Perform Find []

I feel it's a simple thing - but alas I've got no hair left to pull out

 

anyone, anyone....Bueller, Bueller.....

Try:

Set Field [ mydatefield; "<" & $RecordsGreaterThan60 ]

Not sure why you need the variable. You could set the field directly to =

"<" & Get ( CurrentDate ) - 60
