@strdate

Postby tvonbrasch » Sat Mar 16, 2019 11:53 pm

Hi

I want to create a string with a date format corresponding to each element in workfile.

The @strdate command works fine on a quarterly page, but I cannot make it work on a weekly or monthly page....?

That is

Code: Select all

pageselect q
alpha date=@strdate("DD.MM.YYYY")

works, but

Code: Select all

pageselect m
alpha date=@strdate("DD.MM.YYYY")

or

Code: Select all

pageselect w
alpha date=@strdate("DD.MM.YYYY")


does not work....

How can I create a string with a date format corresponding to each element in workfile on a weekly or monthly workpage?

Hello,

Curious, I don't experience a problem with @strdate on a weekly or monthly workfile. Does the following produce the same issue?

Code: Select all

alpha date = @datestr(@date, "DD.MM.YYYY")

Silly question, but you currently have the sample set to 2010 onwards. If you scroll down on the date series, are the dates available from 2010 onwards...?
