Add an Action to a Sheet


I'm trying to add an action to a sheet that only displays data for the current month to date when you open it.

I have created two variables, one tells us the current yer and month the other the day of the month.

My first action works fine where

MonthYear =vMaxMonthYr

For my second action I want to display Day <=vDaysSoFar. (vDaysSoFar is a number, for 25/03/11 it reads 25)

However the second action is getting ignored.

Does anybody have any ideas how to get round this.

My MonthYear & Day are all based on a date in dd/mm/yyyy 00:00:00 format, I think this may be linked to my issue.

Any help greatly received !

What does your variable vDaysSoFar store? Are you using the action "Select in Field"?




vDaysSoFar is a number representing todays date i.e 25 for the 25/3, and yes I'm using the select in field action.

many thanks
