Hi You need to use the strtodate function which converts to a time stamp a date string and you can offset it by a number of days or whatever something like this <?
$start = "2002-01-01"; $expire = date("Y-m-d",strtotime("+30 days",strtotime($start))); echo $expire."<br>"; ?> Tom At 02:03 PM 19/05/2002, Andre Dubuc wrote: >Two columns in my PostgreSQL db are type 'date' (formatted 'YYYY-mm-dd'): >'start_date' and 'expiry_date'.
