Ok, this is good.  Thanks, Mark.

$OrderDate contains both date and time.  It's from a datetime stamp in
MS SQL.  An example is: "2007-04-26 10:31:00:00"  So, adding 8 hours to
an assumed time of midnight won't work, unless we can first strip out
the time.



-----Original Message-----

Syntax and semantics are muddled here.

Not sure if strtotime('now') works. just calling time() would do the

If $orderdata is in fact a *string* containing only a date string and no
time value then why not just use :

if (time() > (strtotime($Orderdate) + 20 * 60 * 60) )

(is the current time later than 20 hour past midnight on the order date
- 8 pm)

Or alternatively:

if (time() > strtotime($Orderdate . " 8:00 pm")
