SOLVED: Pass a MMM-YY date to a form using AHK
« on: April 22, 2010, 11:39 AM »
I know this can't be too difficult but I cannot for the life of me find a help file or anything that can tell me how to pass a date to a form. I have an oracle form that I am creating a one click button for that will run the report that we need without having to enter all of the criteria manually. It asks for a date in the format MMM-YY but I don't know how to script that in AutoHotKey.

Thank you for your help.

I assume by MMM-YY, you mean something like 'Apr-10'.  If so, here you go:

Code: AutoIt [Select]
  1. FormatTime, myDate, % A_Now, MMM-yy
  2. MsgBox, % myDate
