Help with \if please Topic is solved

I have realised that I do not need an \if ... \fi suite here. It has become obvious to me that it does not do anything for me, and that I do not require it. All I need is: {\DTLfetch{litdays}{soy}{\publicationdate}{special}} and it is sufficient. Sorry for not working this out before I posted. Probl...

datetime2 showdow Topic is solved

Thanks. I had not noticed \DTMsetup{showdow=false}, but will probably stick with \DTMshowdowfalse, as it is more compact. However, it is good to have an alternative.

Thanks too for the tip about examining the source code as well as reading the documentation.

datetime2 showdow Topic is solved

\DTMshowdowfalse was exactly what I needed, @rais. What I am wondering is if that information that you supplied is documented somewhere, and I have missed it? Or is it simply something that a person who knows LaTeX well or the datetime2 package well would know instinctively? Anyway, I am grateful t...

datetime2 showdow Topic is solved

I produce a booklet which has the date of publication on the front, and inside a list of forthcoming dates that are calculated automatically using datatime2 calc using default of showdow=true. (a) Inside that works well, as the NAME of the day of the week alongside the date is a helpful check that t...

\DTLpar height Topic is solved

@Ijon Tichy, thanks very much for your help. In the preamble, I added: \DeclareRobustCommand{\DTLpar}{\par} In the page, I have put: { \setlength{\parskip}{0\baselineskip plus 2pt} \newcommand{\pubcoll}{\bliadhna-\mios-\latha} \DTLfetch{goirid}{soy}{\pubcoll}{collect} } That did exactly what I wante...

\DTLpar height Topic is solved

I have a text-based data file that contains the text of short prayers called collects. There is one for each Sunday of the year. The file contains dates in the left hand column, and the collects in the right hand column. Using the datatool package, the template for a booklet I produce weekly for my ...
