SQL statement datetime issue
Posted on 2011-02-25
I have a sql statement that i am trying to use to tell me how many days one date is from another this should be either positive or negative number but I cant seem to get the data correct. I end up with my created field being populated with other date time stamps.
SELECT OIBT.ItemCode, OIBT.BatchNum, POR1.ShipDate, POR1.OpenQty, OIBT.InDate, OPOR.CardCode, OPOR.CardName,
POR1.ShipDate - OIBT.InDate AS dayslate
FROM OIBT INNER JOIN
OPDN ON OIBT.BaseType = OPDN.ObjType AND OIBT.BaseNum = OPDN.DocNum INNER JOIN
PDN1 ON OPDN.DocEntry = PDN1.DocEntry INNER JOIN
OPOR INNER JOIN
POR1 ON OPOR.DocEntry = POR1.DocEntry ON PDN1.BaseType = OPOR.ObjType AND PDN1.BaseEntry = OPOR.DocEntry AND
PDN1.BaseLine = POR1.LineNum
WHERE (OPOR.U_SIF_PO_Sample = 'Y')
As you can see i take one datetime field and subtract it from another and want that to equal a number not datetime.
