Weird Date Problem - Incorrect Evaluation in Script

Any ideas on this?

 

-Customer complains about system malfunctioning.

 

-I go to the script in question. In the script, there are nested If statements. They are like this:

 

DayName(Get(CurrentDate)) = "Monday" etc

 

-I run the script in the debugger. It goes to "Monday" which is odd as today is Tuesday.

 

-I open a watch window in the data viewer, I type in DayName(Get(CurrentDate)), it says "Tuesday".

 

-I go to the offending script step.

 

-I open the If calc box. I make no changes.

 

-I exit the script saving any changes

 

-I rerun the script and it goes to Tuesday. Problem fixed.

 

 

Hilarious.

 

 

File recovers OK.

 

File has just been put into use from a FM6 conversion.

 

Thanks for any ideas.

 

Cheers,
