Today's Date Function


Recommended Posts



does anyone know how to create a field in FileMaker 5.5 with today's date? I normally use FM8 and use the get(CurrentDate) function but there don't seem to be any 'GET' functions in FM 5.5? Can anyone help???


Thanks in advance!!

It was known as Status(CurrentDate) back then. All Get functions as we know them now were Status functions back then (if they had that particular function back then, of course), usually expressed as Status(CURRENTsomething).


Make sure you set the storage to unstored or it will not update when the day changes (this would be true of modern FileMaker 9 as well).
