Using the Today Function

The Today Function is very useful when setting an overdue report when you wish each week to find all those items overdue by a number of days for example, 14 days overdue. A date does not have to be entered each time!

  1. Select either minus or plus (Default is minus)
  2. Enter the relevant days as a number (Default is 0) For example, enter 14 for 2 weeks prior
  3. Select Today
  4. The Date calculation will display in the Date Field and used in the Filter

Note: If the Date calculation does not appear in the field, the Today button has not been selected. Ensure the calculation appears before Selecting outside of the box

It is possible to get a range of dates using the actual Dates or the Today function

For example, to calculate the Issue Due Back within the date range for 14 and 21 days overdue, based on the current dates calculation enter the following:
