    Posted: 21 Mar 2021 at 12:12am
Hi all,

I have the following formula that returns all days between two date fields as a string:

local datetimevar aDate :={PR.DATE_OPENED};
local stringvar dateList:="";
local numbervar xx:={PR.DATE_CLOSED}-{PR.DATE_OPENED};
local numbervar i:=0;
for i:=1 to xx+1 do
(
    dateList:=dateList+left(totext(aDate),10); //,"mm/dd/yyyy");
    local datetimevar aDate:=dateadd("d",1,aDate);
);
dateList;

I would like to see the returning values as date values and not strings so I can run additional searches on them.

Thank you,

Barry

you could create an array of dates. I am rusty and I would double check my syntax.

local stringvar dateList:="";
local numbervar xx:={PR.DATE_CLOSED}-{PR.DATE_OPENED};
shared datetimevar array result(xx);  //I think this initializes the array for xx elements
local numbervar i:=0;
for i:=1 to xx+1 do
(
    dateList:=dateList+left(totext(aDate),10); //,"mm/dd/yyyy");
    result := aDate;    //assign the date to the array
    local datetimevar aDate:=dateadd("d",1,aDate);
);
dateList;
//don't need to return the date array as it is shared and can be accessed from anywhere in the report.
