In my hurricane tracking program dates are entered/stored like so... 13JUN1999. When in the date's EF I added the ability for the user to hit either plus or minus keys to add or subtract a day. I use FN DATE2SECS(@dRec) to do the needed calculations for switching days. Don't know if it will help or not, but I'll send you the code done during development of the switch days "feature". If anyone else wants it just let me know.
