    Hi, I have a database field (duedate) and depending on the periodic field
    I want to update that field the number of months of the periodic field.
    The following code echos the desired result but:

    1) I need advice for how to code:
    $date = new DateTime("+(periodic) months")

    2) I want to put this result into the "duedate" field.

    My date fields are type "timestamp". A couple of hints?

    PHP:
     // advance duedate =+ peridotic(number of months)
     
    $date = new DateTime("+6 months");
    $date->modify("-" . ($date->format('F')+0) . " days");
    echo 
    $date->format('Y-m-d');
    echo 
    "<br />";

     
    // advance duedate one month
    $date = new DateTime("+1 months");
    $date->modify("-" . ($date->format('F')+0) . " days");
    echo 
    $date->format('Y-m-d');
