    Default Re: Increment a data by 1 after a certain time

    To determine when one month has passed the code will need a place to save the starting time. Every time the program is executed, it would read the starting time and see if one month has passed. If the program is long running, it would need to set a Timer to expire after the one month period.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
