Guys:
I’m trying to add a new column using the Derived Column transformation; I need to accomplish the following but not having any luck:

Need to substract 1 ½ day from Current time.
This is what I have:

GETDATE() – 1.5

This is not working,  I know I have to use a cast operator but can’t figure out which one.
