Replies: 8

You're right, getting yesterday's date is not a simple matter. You need to have a table or array of the number of days in each month, plus when you're dealing with February, you need to have logic to determine leap year. I've done this before, so why don't you post the code that you have for this an...

Checkout the COMMAND$ function. Using the same command-line that you posted, your program can get the names of the 2 files as follows: c$ = command$ 'get the command-line, except for the .EXE name. s = instr(c$," ") 'find location of space delimiter between filenames. if s = 0 then print "Invalid or...

Thammel, I'm kinda lost now regarding your problem. Don't let the guys kid you about being an engineer. I've worked with many sharp engineers. I have found that basically they don't like to program --- it's really not their bag. They only program to solve some given problem, so they can get back to ...

Re: Suddenly very slow to open files!!

Hi, I'm a long time QB user at work - an engineer, of course. Suddenly I"m having a very slow response when I do my FO - it takes about a minute to display the directory structure and since I'm about 4 layers down it takes about 4 minutes or so to open the code. This is very annoying! We're using W...

I think the problem is the following:

Code: Select all

while x < 30 
print freshSTU(x), freshGPA(x) 
x = x + 1 
wend
Before the while, you need to set x=0,
otherwise the while will start off with x equal to what it was before.

Re: HELP! calculating student's average

...... The program is almost done, i just need professional help to perfect it. Actually, you program looks good, but has a lot of problems, especially with the nested WHILE/WENDs. One problem with WHILE/WENDs is that there is no EXIT WHILE. So try to use DO/LOOPs instead where you can get out with...

Hey guys, I think we were a bit too rough on Jason. Yes, I agree, the post is about homework. However, he's not asking us to do the homework, he's just asking for a little help to fix it up. He also posted a pretty nice program so we can see that he's well ahead on doing the homework. Give the kid a...
