    Calculate a date field that is 90 days earlier than the one chosen

    Asked by kingfisherweddings on February 06, 2016 at 07:02 AM

    I am trying to calculate a date field that is 90 days earlier than the one chosen.

    A Bride chooses a date of say 1st MAY 2016. The cost of this wedding needs to be paid in full 90 days before the event date.

    In a hidden field, I would like it to populate with the date that is 90 days previous than the one the bride inputted in the date field.

     

    The date in the hidden field for the example above would show 1st February 2016 9 Or there about’s give or take.
