ASP - Serial Date - Cdate() - Function

The information and code available on the subject of converting dates to serial or Julian is very limited. After some research and tinkering, I made a Function for my use that simplifies conversions. The code is very flexible and easily modified for other purposes. I'm using it to save dates to a database and then convert them back as needed.


Function cvtDateSerial(D1,V1)
    if V1=1 then x2=Clng(x2)    'remove hours,min,sec
End Function

Function cvtSerialDate(D1,V1)
  x2=Cdate(Clng(D1))    'remove hours,min,sec
    if V1=0 then cvtSerialDate=x1
    if V1=1 then cvtSerialDate=x2
    if V1=2 then cvtSerialDate=FormatDateTime(x2,2)
    if V1=3 then cvtSerialDate=month(x2) & "/" & day(x2)
    if V1=4 then cvtSerialDate=month(x2) & "/" & day(x2) & "/" & right(year(x2),2)
End Function
