Hello, I need to compare 2 dates in this format: YYYYMM.DD in InstallScript. First I tried comparing it just as real number, but there is no data type that supports real number.

At this point, how can I use StrGetTokens to take numbers before decimal and after decimal? Would VersionCompare work with this particular format?

Or any other suggestions?

Thanks.

If the date strings will always contain leading zeroes ("2010.0101", never "2010.101"), can you just use string comparison with < or StrCompare?

StrCompare worked, thank you!
