Determines a person's astrological sign based on their birthdate

Sample Input:
Astro_sign( 12/6/1950 )
Sample Output:
Sagittarius


 Then copy & paste into FileMaker Advanced's Edit Custom Function window.

Description:

Increase your techno-sexual quotient with this handy function for your PEOPLE database. I use this as a calculation field in FM 6. Not sure if this is official 7 linguistics or not but it works and people like it when you know their sign without any effort.

Note: these functions are not guaranteed or supported by BrianDunning.com. Please contact the individual developer with any questions or problems.

This is my Custom Function and I want to edit it

Doesn't seem to work in FMPro 10 Adv.

It probably does work but needs some changes. The parameter is different here (also, "date" is not accepted in FM, so use "birthdate"), and depending on your version/locale "," may need to become ";".
This version works for me:

Let ( BD = birthdate ;

Case(
(Month(BD) = 3 and Day(BD) >= 21) or (Month(BD) = 4 and Day(BD) <= 19); "Aries";
(Month(BD) = 4 and Day(BD) >= 20) or (Month(BD) = 5 and Day(BD) <= 20); "Taurus";
(Month(BD) = 5 and Day(BD) >= 21) or (Month(BD) = 6 and Day(BD) <= 20); "Gemini";
(Month(BD) = 6 and Day(BD) >= 21) or (Month(BD) = 7 and Day(BD) <= 22); "Cancer";
(Month(BD) = 7 and Day(BD) >= 23) or (Month(BD) = 8 and Day(BD) <= 22); "Leo";
(Month(BD) = 8 and Day(BD) >= 23) or (Month(BD) = 9 and Day(BD) <= 22); "Virgo";
(Month(BD) = 9 and Day(BD) >= 23) or (Month(BD) = 10 and Day(BD) <= 22); "Libra";
(Month(BD) = 10 and Day(BD) >= 23) or (Month(BD) = 11 and Day(BD) <= 21); "Scorpio";
(Month(BD) = 11 and Day(BD) >= 22) or (Month(BD) = 12 and Day(BD) <= 21); "Sagittarius";
(Month(BD) = 12 and Day(BD) >= 22) or (Month(BD) = 1 and Day(BD) <= 19); "Capricorn";
(Month(BD) = 1 and Day(BD) >= 20) or (Month(BD) = 2 and Day(BD) <= 18); "Aquarius";
(Month(BD) = 2 and Day(BD) >= 19) or (Month(BD) = 3 and Day(BD) <= 20); "Pisces";
"Need Birthday")
)
