Hello, paul2311!

I see no need for the "if".

. . .$\displaystyle \begin{array}{c}x \le y\text{ and }1/08/2010 \le y \le 31/07/2011\\ \text{or} \\ x > y\text{ and }1/08/2010 \le x \le 31/07/2011 \end{array}$

$\displaystyle \begin{array}{c}x\text{ precedes or equals }y \\\text{and}\\ y\text{ is among the dates} \\ \text{Aug. 1, 2010 to July 31, 2011} \\ \\ \text{or} \\ \\ x\text{ succeeds }y\\ \text{and} \\ x\text{ is among the dates} \\ \text{Aug. 1, 2010 to July 31, 2011} \end{array}$

Thank you for a prompt explanation Soroban. Could I in this instance read it as follows?

X proceeds or equals y and y between Aug 1 2010 and July 2011

Or

X succeeds y and x between Aug 1 2010 and July 2011

I would be careful with the word "between".

Some may assume that it meansbetween,*literally*
