After I sent my original post the one and only user comment on the relative date strings man page was pointed out to me. So, it's there but how many people make a habit of reading all the user comments? Anyway, the following work: // first day of this month $t1 = strtotime(date('Y-m',strtotime('this month'))); // last day of next month // get the first day of month after next and subtract one day $t2 = strtotime(date('Y-m',$t1 + (86400 * 70)))-86400; -- "I'm so optimistic I'd go after Moby Dick in a row boat and take the tartar sauce with me." -- Zig Zigler Rick Pasotto r...@niof.net http://www.niof.net -- PHP General Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
