How can I do the calculated date  in the dw with Computed  field.
I have a Computed Field where I calculate the number of months the item expire in.
Now, based on that I need to report the month when the part expire.


Ex.
Remaining Hours 400
Remaining Months 400/180 ( 180 часов в месяц хардкодед)= 2
Expire Months 2

Expire Date needed Todays date + 2 months = August, 2006...

How to do the calculations for the date.
In SQL I could do the Dateadd, but how do I do that in Dw.

thanks

Thank you,

Is the relative date only works with days, is it possible something like thins for months?

If you are only after the month then Try this:

Long ll_month

ll_month = Month ( Today( ) ) // Should return the Month of the Today( June = 6)

Now all you need to do is add 2 to the return value.  You will likely need logic to handle the case if you exceed month 12 but that should be easy.

ll_month + 2

You can also do Year ( Today( ) ) should you want to involve years too.

you can try this

 If((400/180)+2>12,13 - (400/180)+2, (400/180)+2) make a compute filed with the name c_month
The creat another computete file like this

If(c_month=1,’Jan’,if(c_month=2,’Feb’, if(c_month=3,’March’, if(c_month=4,’April’, if(c_month=5,’May’, if(c_month=6,’june’, if(c_month=7,’July’, if(c_month=8,’August’, if(c_month=9,’Sep’, if(c_month=10,’OCT’, if(c_month=11,’Nov’, if(c_month=12,’DEC’,))))))))))))

sorry for mistyping

you can try this

 If((400/180)+2>12,13 - (400/180)+2, (400/180)+2) make a compute filed with the name c_month and hide it
Then creat another computed filed like this

If(c_month=1,’Jan’,if(c_month=2,’Feb’, if(c_month=3,’March’, if(c_month=4,’April’, if(c_month=5,’May’, if(c_month=6,’june’, if(c_month=7,’July’, if(c_month=8,’August’, if(c_month=9,’Sep’, if(c_month=10,’OCT’, if(c_month=11,’Nov’, if(c_month=12,’DEC’,))))))))))))
