Re: Server Actions / Formulaby

Strptime, basically the opposite of strftime. Look it up, is part of standard library. Or else move your closing bracket for gmtime.

Hi, I have a server action writing back to the server, based on an automated action. On one of the destinations, I am trying to work out a formula that gives me another field from the same object, plus X amount of days. Then write back that to another field. I can work out a formula that gives me current date, plus a number of days. But I have tried various ways to integrate the object date field, but it seems I am not sure how it to convert the date to an integer. "time.strftime('%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S',time.gmtime(time.time()+3600*24*30))" This gives me current date, but the below I am trying to specify the date plus the days I want: "time.strftime('%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S',time.gmtime(object.x_invoice_date+3600*24*30))" Which gives me the error "cannot concatenate 'str' and 'int' objects". So ok, this means the x_invoice_date is giving me a string I presume. But is there any function I can use in the Server Actions formula, that will allow me to convert the returned field to an integer? Or have I gone completely wrong? Thanks Dave
