Hi Don -

Thank you for taking the time to go over this with me.

I will try this out and get back to you.

If you have a very recent bash, you might also try that ksh printf command with it. If that doesn't work, you can try perl as discussed in General Purpose Date Script, or you can try parsing the output from the cal utility, or you can write some C code using the mktime(), strftime(), and/or strptime() functions.

What do you mean?

Hi Rudi -

I'm getting the following error with your code (particularly your 3rd example - which is the correct one for the fiscal year increment going from 53 to 1:

FY="${FY//[a-z;\']/}": bad substitution
Once I can correct that, I think i can use that same example to build some dynamic loops. ANy ideas as to what the error is? I tried to correct to no avail.

Thank you!

HI Rudi -

Sorry for the bother - I can't seem to figure out the above error. Do you have any idea?

It works fine with my bash. You have to experiment with your ksh. Double check with your man ksh on "Parameter Expansion". It may not accept the escaped single quote - test with leaving that out, and / or using "'" instead.

Thanks, Rudi!

Been playing around with this but unfortunately unable to get it to work.

I'll keep plugging away.

Is it the single quote, be it escaped or not? Or another character? Or doesn't your shell like that special parameter expansion at all? Without further evidence, I'm afraid your external help will become scarce.
