Solved it. I can't use a function in there but I can nest variables,
so I need to invent another variable to store that "02" in. But that
too does not quite work, it needs to be single digit, i.e. not "02"
but "2". That I think is a weakness and ought to be amended by the
next update.

Until it is, this works to get rid of leading zeroes:

^!Set %varMON%=^\$Calc(^\$StrCopy("^%varDAT%";3;2)\$;0)\$

Axel,

You could use either a single 'M' for month in your date function.

If you need the double mm for some other reason, use separate date
function with only a single M as argument to get a month number

^!Set %z%=^\$GetDate(M)\$
^!Set %month%=^%array^%z%%

This would be MUCH faster than ^\$calc, much more readable than
stripping any leading '0' from a two char month number.

Cheers,

I could, but I don't use a date function. The YYMMDD string, e.g.
090209, is part of a file naming and anchor naming scheme.

> This would be MUCH faster than ^\$calc,

Probably, but speed is irrelevant here. The function is part of a
Html wizard for formatted calendar entries and relieves me from
typing the same old stuff over and over again. I'd rather type a
single string like 090209 and leave it to the machine to split that
apart as needed than having separate fields for year, month, and
day. This is the finished product, but it does not make a lot of
sense out of context:

^!Set %varDAT%=^?{Datum: }; %varCLS%=^?{(T=L)Class:
=_blau|grau|weiss|gelb}

^!IfEmpty "^%varDAT%" SKIP

^!InsertHtml <P CLASS="grau vortit bigskip">^P^%varDAT%</P>^P^&

^!InsertHtml <DIV CLASS="gelb"><H2
CLASS="^%varCLS%">^P^&^P</H2></DIV><!-- end .GELB -->

I really must move over my LaTeX editing to NoteTab too, I do hate
all that unnecessary typing.
By the way: The /L /C and /INI switches are a great tool when
starting NoteTab by double-clicking or right-clicking a file, but
there seems to be no way to start NoteTab first, and then load
another ini file or switch it in a running NoteTab. Perhaps i need
to place several entries into the Windows Start menu.

Are you sure?
Have you looked at ^!ProgIniLoad and ^!ProgIniSave?

From the few times I've used these commands I remember them as being a
bit tricky to get right, but I'm pretty sure they will do what you want.

Well, with NoteTab there is always more than one way to skin a cat.

Back in the days BEFORE NT had arrays, we used to create FAKE arrays.

^!Set %array01%=January; %array02%=February; ... %array12%=December

End result, it works just like an array, but you can use STRINGS to
access the individual elements:

;extract the month's 2-digit number
^!Set %monthstring%=^\$StrCopy("^%date%";3;2)\$
;use it as array index
^!Set %month%=^%array^%monthstring%%

You'd have to translate the names to your appliction. But you will not
need the intransparent code to strip leading zeros from a string.
