Maybe it's a 'date format' issue ?

3 Jul 55 : Cancer

7 Mar 55 - Pisces

I'm sure that Derek will confirm. Smiley

Is the day / month around the right way? I mean did the user input in the correct order? Trouble is you cannot change them to test as an average user.

Maybe worth uploading the files again in case of corruption?

Zodiac.pl appears to hold the dates?

Hi Derek,

I've just tested those dates and they work as they should for me, and I can't see anything wrong in the code. I think you'll find it's a user input error as depablo said:

Why didn't I think of that.  Grin  Normally here in Australia we put day/month/year. Forum has month/day/year.

All fixed.  Thanks guys.

I have actually been caught out with this before, only thing that saved me was my birthday was higher than twelve and it threw an error on input.

Your user was using dates below twelve and got caught out  Cheesy
