 I am outputting the results of a query that shows the person who are scheduled to come to work, the date that they are working, the times that they should be in, and the shift number. I am having difficulties trying to highlight the upcoming day if that day is within seven days of the current date. The conditional code that I am using either highlights all the dates or doesn’t highlight. Any dates at all. I know that there is a way to do it. I am just stuck. i've attached an image of the result that im looking for. Any help would be great. Please see my code below.

 

My initial query

<cfquery name="security_admin" datasource="master">
select <!---concat(fname,' ',xholyabbv) as FOI,---> concat(fname) as FOI, cell, squadlt, secfoiid, secid, secdate as DATE, secshift, shift.shift as TIMES, shinumber, shiweek, lt_initials
FROM name
LEFT JOIN security ON foiid = secfoiid
LEFT JOIN shift ON shiid = secshift
LEFT JOIN squadlt ON ltid = squadlt
WHERE secfoiid is not null
AND secdate between '#secstartdate#' and '#secenddate#'
ORDER BY shinumber, date <!---times desc,--->;
</cfquery>

<cfquery name="week_security" datasource="master">
Select weeid, weebegin, weeend
from week_security
</cfquery>

 

<cfquery name="week_security" datasource="master">
Select weeid, weebegin, weeend
from week_security
</cfquery>

 

 

<!---my table that display the results--->

<div class="container-md">
<table id="example" class="display table-sm" >
<thead>
<tr>
<th>Shift No.</th>
<th width=".5%">Date</th>
<th width="20%">Brother</th>

<th width="20%">Time</th>
<th width=".5%">Squad</th>
</tr>
</thead>
<tbody>

<cfloop query="security_admin">

<cfoutput>
<tr>
<td align="center">#shinumber#</td>
<td><cfif now() lTE "#week_security.weeend#" and now() gTE "#week_security.weebegin#">***<cfelse></cfif>
#LsDateFormat(date, 'mm/dd')#</td>
<td>#security_admin.foi#</td>
<td>#security_admin.times#</td>
<td>#security_admin.lt_initials#</td>
</tr>
</cfoutput>

</cfloop>
</tbody>
</table>
</div>

 

<!---My disired outcome--->

Suggestion:

<!--- Replace the 2 tags <cfloop> and <cfoutput> with just the 1 tag <cfoutput> --->
<cfoutput query="security_admin">
	<!--- Convert to a date object, which is more accurate to handle --->
	<cfset scheduleDateObject=LSParseDatetime(date)>
	<!--- Evaluate difference in days from today --->
	<cfset dateDiffInDays=dateDiff("d", now(), scheduleDateObject)>
	<tr>
	<td align="center">#shinumber#</td>
	<!--- Bold, red asterisks added when schedule date is within 7 days of today --->
	<td>#

This is exactly what I was looking for. Thank you for your help. The converting to a date object I have not used yet. But this will be now in my catalog for such.
Thanks again for your help.
