Hi all,
i have a very strange and bizarre problem using webi version of business objects XI.
I used a days between function to determine the age of two dates...but for some reason the day turns the next day at 6PM. My tech support has not been able to find a solution. Any ideas, experts? see below the images of the result:

the formula i am using for age is:

=DaysBetween([Query 1].[Actual Start Time];[Current Date])

below i am showing both values and see that the Age jumps one day at 6pm...a day later.

I didn't work whit business objects XI since a will, but Looks like if it's link to timezone.

Are you in time zone (GMT -6)?

You can change your windows TimeZone to see if he change the formula result (if you put GMT -4 you should see a difference after 8pm instead of 6pm).

I think you can used SQL formula instead of business objects formula.

T-SQL:
DATEDIFF(dd, [actual start Time], getdatE())
