I need to have a field that calculates 342 days added on to ‘breeding’ date entered in a table -

So if someone enters 1/1/2016 for a breeding date

I need the foaling date to show: 12/8/2016 (342 days later)

is there something like (Breeding_Date)+342(days)

    Now I understand :-)
    I fixed the display in the calendar but you asked about the field view in the record. I'm afraid I can't help you with that. Every Appointment has a time and you can't have the field not show the time.

  • Thanks Leo, that seems to work okay. Thats a great help...

    There appears an error, in the
    Trigger After Update (D := ((number(F)+"/")+number((G-F)))

    Invalid formula: Error: Field not found: "D" a line 1, column 5

    should I ignore this?

    Hello,

    I'm currently on a 30-day trial for the cloud service. It looks like Ninox can provide a lot of the functionality I'm looking for for my business. I want to use the multi-line text field to enter notes/contact history for a contact/company, but it would be great if there were a way for the current date to be entered automatically at the beginning of an entry so that I know when I wrote it, or when I sent an email to the contact. Is this possible?
    Regards,
    Dean

    Dear Birger,
    Many thanks for your very speedy reply - I'll take a look about incorporating this function into my trial database.
    Thanks again.

  • The function weekday(date) is supposed to return 0=Sunday, but for me it its returning 0=Monday. (System preferences is set to Sunday as the first day pf the week).

    Ninox has not native preferred first day of the week. It will look at the browser and/or system preferences to determine the first day of the week.

  • Hi, I have a choice field called "Callback in" with the options 3, 6, 9 and 12 (being a number of months).

    I want to calculate a date which is x number of months from a certain date ("Last contacted"), where x is the choice selected.

    I tried "'Last contacted' +( 30 * number('Callback in'))" as the simplest solution but it doesn't work - it just adds 1, 2, 3 or 4 months to the date, not 3, 6, 9 or 12.

    Can you help please? Alternatively is there a way of calculating it using calendar months rather than an average of 30 days per month?

    Thank you!

  • Hello Jeni,
    either

    'Last contacted' + (30 * number (text ('Callback in'))

    or with calendar months

    date (year ('Last contacted'), month ('Last contacted') + number (text ('Callback in')), day ('Last contacted'))

  • Thank you - that's working now, I knew it would be something simple.

    However, it only works once and then the fields "lock" unless I come out of the record and go back in. Is that correct? I was hoping I could select the different options without going in and out of the record?

    Thanks

  • I don't understand that. Which data fields do you mean?
    Like
  • Hi Leo - now I have put the formula in place, I can't select anything from "Callback in" unless I reload the database. I can then select an option and it updates the date.

    However, if I then try to change "Callback in" to a different choice, it won't let me. I have to reload the database, go back to the record and then it works.

    Does that make sense?

  • I do not understand. If you have three fields:

    1. 'last contacted' (date)
    2. 'callback in' (choice)
    3. 'Next Contact' (f (x) with your formula)

    Then everything should work.

    format( 'Date field', "dd mmm" )

    Hi, I'm a current Tapforms user investigating wether Ninox could be a useful replacement...
    I need a calculated field to show the remaining years & months between "today" and a date in the future (other field).
    I can't find in your user manual wether Ninox can actually provide such a type of format as the result of a calculation? Like for example: "4 years, 3 months".
    Would that be possible and how should that be achieved?
    Much appreciated.

    Hi,
    i have a "date X" field and need to calculate (in a new field) dateX minus 120 days, (with the format of the result to be also a date of course).
    Could you please provide me the correct formula for this as i'm struggling...
    Much appreciated,
    Thierry

  • Hi Thierry,

    you can use a formal field:

    dateX - 120

    it will give out a date, as well.

    Best regards, Alex
