to-date

 [1/4] from: mattsmac::hotmail at: 14-Nov-2003 10:46


Stupid question, maybe: Are there any circumstances where to-date would return a string?? Because that's what's happening in my code and I can't figure out why info/date <------- string version of the date print type? to-date info/date <---------- returns string!

Sounds strange. One possibility ..... Could you have redefined to-date ? from-date: "last tuesday" to-date: "tomorrow" print type? to-date info/date ==string [value of info/date] You can check with source to-date Sunanda.

Hi Matt, MM> Are there any circumstances where to-date would return a string?? I've never seen that happen. In addition to what Sunanda said, try using "to date!" in place of "to-date" and see what you get. -- Gregg
