Global date value
I need a Global date field to always "hold" January 1, of the current year?
Well, you could just code setting the Global Field as part of the opening script. Every year you just change the script.
You could add something like this to an opening script to set the global field whenever the file is opened: Set Field [ Your Global Field; Date(1;1;Year(Get ( CurrentDate )))]
In some cases, you can define an unstored calculation field with Mark_M's calculation and it will always show the current year's Jan 1 date.
Beauty! thx Guys
