What?
There may be other articles out there documenting this but I can't keep trying to find these in Google so referring to my own website, this is a doddle for me to find each time.

Why?
I have to do this so often that it deserves an article. Though writing a whole page for this is probably unwarranted so I may rename this article later to common things I need to do in Zoho Deluge.

How?
So going through the forums you may find the following example:

What?
A quick article on how to debug some errors in Zoho.

Why?
I wanted a general note to list certain errors that we get when we do certain things in Zoho but didn't want to write a separate page for each minor issue.

How?
So I'm going to try and list solutions to minor errors we run into.

What?
This is a quick article on what should be a simple mathematics equation: Determine the quarter from a given month.

Why?
Fine if you are determining the quarter by the month and your Fiscal year starts from January, simply divide by 3...

How?
I'm showing this in Zoho Deluge but the logic can be adapted to other code. You will need this snippet of code for the examples below:
copyraw
l_Months = {1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12};
l_MonthNames = {"January","February","March","April","May","June","July","August","September","October","November","December"};
  1.  l_Months = {1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12}
  2.  l_MonthNames = {"January","February","March","April","May","June","July","August","September","October","November","December"}

What?
This is a quick article to demonstrate how to compare two datetime values with the timezone specified.

Why?
A client's ZohoCRM had a different timezone setting than the user a script would be run as. The time difference was just one hour but this caused problems if comparing two datetime values. In this particular case, we needed to check on the expiry of an access token used in OAuth2.0 for an API.

How?
All with deluge but we will split the date and time value obtained from a CRM field and compare it to the current time combined with a timezone. In this particular case, we will switch the current time to Europe/London (You can use an abbreviation such as GMT but this doesn't seem to check if daylight savings is in effect):

What?
Thought I'd put an article here to remind me how to make the retrieval of a record case-insensitive.

Why?
Consider that I have the following creator table:
copyraw
Product_Name   Product_SKU   
-------------- -------------
MyProduct1     TEST01
Myproduct2     TEST02
myproduct3     TEST03
  1.  Product_Name   Product_SKU 
  2.  -------------- ------------- 
  3.  MyProduct1     TEST01 
  4.  Myproduct2     TEST02 
  5.  myproduct3     TEST03 

I'm trying to insert a record for a new product if it doesn't exist in the table but if it does exist then to simply skip adding the product.

What?
An article on setting a date field to either the first Monday of the next month or to the last Tuesday of the current/next month. What I mean by the last Tuesday is if the last Tuesday of the month is before the current date, then set it to the last Tuesday of next month.

Why?
This was a request by a client who instead of specifying the 1st of every month, or 15th of each month, to say the first Monday of the month (ignoring bank holidays) or to say the last Tuesday of the month.

How?
Quite easily. For the first Monday of the month, it is likely that even if today was the first day of the month and coincidentally a Monday, then we would want to specify the field date to be the first Monday of the next month. If however we want the last Tuesday of the month and that Tuesday happens before today, then we want the last Tuesday of the next month.
