Hello,

I have a fld "dates" with a list of years sorted descending:
(the list has more than 1000 lines)
...
2002
2002
2001
1997
1997
1995
1994
...

I'd like to know how much dates per 10 years

00-10 : 75
11-20 : 58
...
...


here is my script :

on mouseUp
   put fld "dates" into tDates
   put the short date into toDay
   convert toDay to dateItems
   put item 1 of toDay into thisYear
   put "0" into a
   put thisYear-10 into thisYear
   put empty into tResult
    repeat for each line L in tDates
     if L „ thisYear then
       add "1" to a
     else
       put a&cr after tResult
       put "1" into a
       put thisYear-10 into thisYear
     end if
   end repeat
   answer tResult
end mouseUp

but my result "tResult" is not correct

can anyone help me ???
