|I am sorry if I was unclear in my original post....however, I will try both of the above and let you know how it fits my needs if at all. They both look true and accurate. Let me rephrase my request. |
There are thousands of files that have file names with dates ranging from 20060101 - current date (formatted CCYYMMDD) in the first position (token) of a file name delimited by (.) - [i.e 20090129.NAME2.NAME3.NAME4.TXT] and this needs to capture a user prompt asking for the specific date they want. I just want to ensure that when someone enters any of the following it fails
OR said in the positive
Only allow the format of the date parameter listed above, parsed from the date of the machine, WHICH does look like ace_omega provided that which I will test and confirm.
Now Mechanix2Go you have always been a amazement and huge help on this site and I cannot thank you enough.....however, IF in fact the syntax for checking the date range using the OS date in the manner ace_omega provided works, then wouldnt it ONLY allow for 8 characters or are you saying that it could miss that and your syntax would be required?
