Yes, you can. You need to read the documentation again.

Why not break it down into simple steps so that it is easier to understand, and then when you do understand condense it into a single expression.

1) Set a variable as a date
2) Subtract your choice of value from said variable
3) Convert said variable into a date format

So basically, exactly as Enrico has said above :mrgreen:

Step 1a) convert date in variable to Basedate form (spoon-feeding)
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.
