1. ## [RESOLVED] Astrological Calculations

Witch code must be writen in order to show this:

Already i have 8 textbox, 1 label and1 command button. I add second label and name itZdate. Now i want when i put number in days and months field on Zdate label it show zodiac name. For example:
Code:
``` If Text5, text6, text7, text8 = "from 03 - 21 to 04-20" then
Zdate.caption = "Aries"
Else
EndIf
End Sub```
I hope you understand what i wanna to do

Zodiac date table:

Aries - 03.21-04.20
Ox - 04.21-05.21
Twin - 05.22-0621
Cancer - 06.22-07.22
Lion - 07.22-08.22
Virgo - 08.23-09.23
Libra - 09.24-10.23
Scorpion -10.24-11.22
Sagittarius - 11.23-12.22
Capricorn - 12.23-01.19

## Re: Astrological Calculations

After the line : "Label1.Caption = Format(intTotal2)" and before the line: "Else"Write the next lines of code
Code:
```Dim strAux as String
strAux = Text5.Text & Text6.Text & Text7.Text & Text8.Text
If strAux >= "0321" And strAux <= "0420" Then SDate.Caption = "Aries"
If strAux >= "0421" And strAux <= "0521" Then SDate.Caption = "Ox"
If strAux >= "0522" And strAux <= "0621" Then SDate.Caption = "Twin"
'
' And So on each zodiac name
'```

Thanks you really match You are pro on this vb6 programming. I wonder whats you learning process must be so you can programming like this. How you study vb6?

'
' And So on each zodiac name
'```
This pattern works (assuming that the leading zeroes are always present in Text5 and Text7) for all except 'Capricorn', as the dates for that span the end of the year.
Following the pattern would give:
Code:
`If strAux >= "1223" And strAux <= "0119" Then SDate.Caption = "Capricorn"`
which will obviously not be satisfied for any value of strAux. In this case you will need to use Or instead:
Code:
`If strAux >= "1223" Or strAux <= "0119" Then SDate.Caption = "Capricorn"`

So basically i need just change text from AND to OR. Thanks you :-)
I just tried to did this what you suggest, it not going to work, it make calculation discrepancies

Peter _B --> Thanks for the correction!

Halosar7 ---> The correction apply only for Capricorn, the other remain the same

Code:
```If strAux >= "1123" And strAux <= "1222" Then SDate.Caption = "Šaulys"
If strAux >= "1223" Or strAux <= "0119" Then SDate.Caption = "Ožiaragis"
If strAux >= "0120" And strAux <= "0218" Then SDate.Caption = "Vandenis"
If strAux >= "0219" And strAux <= "0320" Then SDate.Caption = "Žuvys"```
But this correction did affect progams funcionality? Because Aquarius and fish remains same and that "or" intervened in the middle.

Looks OK to me. What value of strAux does it not work for?

Edit: Are you sure that strAux has the leading zeroes correctly? I.e. is the first of january "0101" rather than "11"?

## Re: [RESOLVED] Astrological Calculations

What's the wrong result? In which sign? in which dates' range?
But this correction did affect progams funcionality? Because Aquarius and fish remains same and that "or" intervened in the middle
In this case there is not important the order of the instructions

13. ## Re: [RESOLVED] Astrological Calculations

Program works fine for now. But i dont understand why only capricorn must be with "OR" and other remains same as "AND" ?

I explained this in my first post - it is because Capricorn spans dates from the end of one year into the start of the next. Therefore the 'start' date (23rd December) is later in the year than the 'end' date (19th January).

For all the other signs the 'start' date is earlier in the year than the 'end' date

Now i understand :-) Thanks you :-)
