Look at Calendar and its add() method.

Also, TellTheDetails. It's impossible to know what you've tried and what specific problems you had if you don't tell us.

That really doesn't provide any new information. My first reply still stands. Try it, and if you're still stuck, post back with your attempt and details about what's you're having trouble with.

Please don't do that. Whatever changes you make to existing posts may cause any reply to look ridiculous. Just create a new post with the updated information.

Now, define "last week". Is it exactly 7 days ago? Is it the first day of the week? Or what?
Likewise for "last quarter". Would that be July 1st, October 31st, or what?
