Next Up: Date Time Functions in Access
By Richard Rost   Richard Rost on Twitter Richard Rost on LinkedIn Email Richard Rost   8 years ago

Microsoft Access TutorialsHey guys, just looking for some feedback. My next Access class will be Expert 27 and will continue the detailed Function Guide I started with Expert 25. This class will cover DATE AND TIME functions.

I've got a list of all of the functions, and I'll show you how to use them and what they do, but the challenge for making ALL of my classes is coming up with GOOD EXAMPLES. So, if you have anything that you'd like to see how to do in Access with regards to date and time functions, let me know.

I'm already going to show you things like how to calculate the first day of next month, how many days are in the current year, and so on... but I'm looking for lots of other examples to include in the class. So, if you've got any, post them here and I'll try to include them. Thanks!

Hello. You asked for date/time examples. Here's one I've found especially perplexing. I'm a financial planner. When I advise on how college savings should be allocated, it depends on how many years until first and last withdrawal (these in turn depend on current grade level and how many years of college are planned). Once I determine the child's grade level once, I don't want to ask again.  I want to be able to calculate subsequent grade levels automatically and, from that, how many years to first and last withdrawal.
I assume a grade ends on June 30th and college will be paid for on June 30th for Fall enrollment.
The challenge I've had is that I can't go by calendar year to determine current grade level, the answer differs if the current month is March or September.
My best attempt has been to calculate the latest  June (even if that was in the prior calendar year) and subtract that date from the anticipated college graduation date in order to determine how many years to last withdrawal. Would love to hear if you have a better solution. Thank you.
