sum if mysql

Hi I am trying to do a calculation of the number of helpdesk calls that are open at the end of the day.

I am using the following

sum(if(FROM_UNIXTIME(maindb.closedatex,"%Y-%m-%d") >,1,0 ))

This checks if the close date of the call is greater than my date field. However if a call is still open then the closdate is displayed as "1970-01-01"

Does anyone know how I can add this into the statement above?

if i understand you right you need

sum(if(FROM_UNIXTIME(maindb.closedatex,"%Y-%m-%d") > or maindb.closedatex=0, 1,0 ))

0 because 1970-01-01 00:00:00 translates to that in unix_timestamp.  or you can also do

"or from_unixtime(maindb.closedatex,'%Y-%m-%d') = '1970-01-01'"
