Hey Folks, I am setting up a an employee database and I want to be able to compare the expiry date of the employee's drivers license to the current date. The idea is that if the employee's license is due to expire in the next 30 days it will send an alert to the main calendar (yet to be developed) msg side bar which at this stage will be a label array. it is always the simple things that stump me, i have been playing with this for 2 days, very frustrating for something that should be so simple. Thanks Daz
