VB and VBScript Allow for it using the DateAdd function. d = "9/28/2002 1:36:07 PM" d = DateAdd("s", 12, DateAdd("n", 15, DateAdd("h", 7, DateAdd("d", 2, DateAdd("m", 3, DateAdd("yyyy", 4, d)))))) SQL has a similar function named: DATEADD And John Cowan wants to know: > Ah, but what is 2004-02-29 plus a year and a day?

Engineering is what happens when science and mathematics meet politics. Products are what happens when all three meet reality.
