DateCompare

Synopsis

                    DateCompare(date1, date2 [, datepart])

Compares two date/time objects. Returns -1 if date1 is less than date2, 0 if both date/time objects are equal, or 1 if date1 is greater than date2. Dates must be in the range AD 100-9999. The precision of the comparison may be limited to a specific part of the date/time object by specifying a value for the optional datepart parameter. Valid attributes for datepart are s (second), n (minute), h (hour), d (day), m (month), and yyyy (year). For information on how ColdFusion MX handles two-digit years, see CreateDate( ). Examples:
