Hi Julie,

I would think that you should have to find a known date that falls on
Friday. Then set up variables with the number of days in each month
through the next year. Then have the clip cycle through the year adding
seven days at a time to the date in each loop and decrementing the month
until there were not seven days in it and then adding the left over days in
that month to the next month and changing the month to the next month and
adding seven days to the date again while decrementing the new month. If
you did something like that, you should be able to figure your schedule for
the next year. You could probably use wizards to get the beginning date,
the day of the week, the number of days left in the current month, the days
in February, and the current year. Then write your clip to calculate the
date from these facts.

Have a happy fourth.

Larry

Lead me not into temptation, I can find it myself.

I think a hand calculator and a calendar would be faster....

Hi Don,

The list has a file section where you can upload your files for sharing.
You need to log on to the site to use it but otherwise once there you can
upload files to share and just post to the list telling others where to
find them.

This site is to provide information about file sharing on the mailing lists.

Gee, thanks! 8D I have the lists marked so they will not accept
attachments. You know how we like to remove text not needed to
understand the reply and excessive "Thanks" (actually none is
better, but if you just have to, one is sufficient;) not posted,
imagine attachments... ;)

You can post in the file area if it is pretty big and/or has a
lot of long lines. You can send it in private eMail of course.

Happy Clip'n!
Jody

I am a day late and a dollar short but I thought that you might like to
have this handy dandy DOS calendar maker. It does what you want and it
makes calendars that you can edit and print with NoteTab. And to top it
all off, it is FREE! It is called YearCal. You can download it from:

ftp://ftp.simtel.net/pub/simtelnet/msdos/deskaces/yrcal17t.zip

I just checked and the URL is still current.

Here is a sample of what it does:

Incidently, I realized that removing the 1901-2099 restriction was pretty
simple so I've revised the library. Maybe I'll upload it; though I can't
imagine anyone but a fiction writer -- sci-fi, maybe -- needing to go beyond
2099.

actually not everyone uses Gregorian calendars

Genealogists (like me) have all different kinds of systems to deal
with. Chinese calendar is way up ther, somewhere over 3,000 I think.
