BW - How to create Date Key Figure

Hi gurus,

I had being facing BW2.0 Date Key Figure's issue for quite a while. Doesnt seem to have any idea
on how to start doing it.

What happen is I need to create infoobject of key figure type that can calculate the different between two dates & return the number of days. Is it possible to be done via extractor/admin workbench? Dont tell me to use excel formula.
It is use in to calculate delivery time for MM module.

Any guidance is highly appreciate.

Thank in advance.

Hi hydra,
I don't know about BW but if you can use ABAP in your BW module then it is very simple.

Data : date_diff_in_days(5) type N.

Data : date_1 like sy-datum.
data : date_2 like sy-datum.

date_diff_in_days =  date_1 - date_2 .

I think you can use formulaes in Date key figure.

I am sorry if this doesn't help you.
