38875/365= 106.50684931 50684931 50684931 50684931

Take the integer 106 and add it onto 1900 gives 2006.

1900+106=2006

Take the remainder or MOD of 38875/365 = 185

i.e. 38875 mod 365 = 185

now subtract the number of leap years from 1900 till now [b]inclusive[/b].
This is 27 as 1900 was a leap year, as was 2000.

( I had heard if a year ends with just 2 noughts like 1900 it's not counted as a leap year<>somewhere? Not sure on that one :-| )

So getting back then...>

185-27=158.

Now from this we must subtract 1 as Jan 1st 1900 was day zero.

Microsoft like to start counting from zero for some functions ( but not all, some in VB.Net start at 1 ).

So 157 then is the 157th day of this year or 6/06/2006.

31 (Jan) + 28 (Feb) + 31 (March) + 30 (April) + 31 (May) + 6 = 157.

Summary:>
[code]
Dim NoOfYears, remainingDays, newRemainingDays As Integer
NoOfYears=38875365 '= NoOfYears to add to 1900.
'Reverse slash or is integer division.

remainingDays=38875 mod 365 '= remainingDays

'Deduct leap years since 1900 including 1900 [b]inclusive
'...in other words.[/b]
[blue]'You can get the 27 by ((year-1900)4)+1
'E.G. ((2006-1900)4)+1 = 27 [/blue][red]
'if you do then DELETE the RED line of code below.[/red]
'What this will do is make the sum>>
'((2006-1900)4)+2 = 28

'I don't think INTEGER DIVISION rounds up.

newRemainingDays=remainingDays-27[red]
newRemainingDays=newRemainingDays-1[/red]

'newRemainingDays =157 this is the day number in the year.
[/code]

Regards,

Dr M.

P.S. The Adjust time/date function on a PC goes up to 31/12/2099, i think most of dont want to live to see that day anyway ( we'll be too old or pushing up daisy's ).

Hello Dr. M.
The value of 38875 was came from 3rd party external program. But I found there was a function "datetime.fromOAdate" which can covert julian into Calendar date. Tkx a again for your assistance..
