Now, i&#039m not looking for code, but need to be pointed in the right direction. What i want is when a user logs on i need to compare a date (in a field of a database) with todays date. If the date is greater than or equal to today&#039s date i need to change another field of the same database [same table] - if the date is less than today&#039s date - do nothing....<BR><BR>i&#039ve never worked with dates using ASP and don&#039t know where to start... thanks for any help - it is appreciated.<BR><BR>-eric³
