Hello I am trying to add an age calculation within a sub querry but can not seem to get it in there.
select distinct cl.uniqueid_c,cl.clientcode_c,cl.firstname_vc,cl.lastname_vc, cd.diagnosis_c, ard.description_vc,
cd.axis_c, cd.type_c,ep.type_vc as eptype, ep.status_vc,ep.episodeiden_si,
need to add a subquery here to calculate age from the birthdate_d field. any help would be great


from ar.client cl
inner join cd.clientdiagnosis cd on cl.uniqueid_c = cd.clientid_c
inner join cd.episode ep on cl.uniqueid_c = ep.clientid_c
inner join ar.diagnosiscodes dc on dc.uniqueid_c = cd.diagnosiscodeid_c
inner join ar.diagnosis ard on ard.uniqueid_c = dc.diagnosisid_c
--inner join ar.cpsplan cp on cl.uniqueid_c = cp.clientid_c
--inner join ar.psplanmaster pm on cp.psplanmasterid_c = pm.uniqueid_c
where cl.termdate_d is null and ep.enddate_d is null
--and cd.enddate_d is null
--and cl.clientcode_c not like ('ds%')
--and cd.diagnosis_c in( '299.00') and cd.type_c = 'P'
order by cl.lastname_vc
--pm.pscode_c = '0002'
--and
--cd.diagnosis_c ='294.1'

can you use the function datediff:

datediff(year,birthdate_d,GETDATE())

dbeneit: That will not work correctly, because it only substracts the years from now and birthdate, but doesnt take into account wether today is before or after the persons birthdate in this calendar year.

mgutpill:
You didnt say wether you want the age as an int, or also with some decimal precision.
You could try something like
DateDiff('d',[Date of Birth],getDate())/365.25 AS age
or, if you want an integer, you'd have to convert this to an int or round it.

another, slightly more complicated but precise way to get the age in years:
select datediff(yy, birthday, getDate()) -
      (case when (datepart(m, birthday) > datepart(m, getDate())) or
                  (datepart(m, birthday) = datepart(m, getDate()) And
                        datepart(d, birthday) > datepart(d, getDate()))
                  then 1
                  else 0
      end) as Age1

good luck,

dready

SELECT ...other columns as above...,
    DATEDIFF(YEAR, birthdate_d, GETDATE()) - CASE WHEN CONVERT(CHAR(5), birthdate_d, 1) > 
        CONVERT(CHAR(5), GETDATE(), 1) THEN 1 ELSE 0 END AS [Age]
FROM ...rest same as above...
