I would like to ask again for your help converting an excel formula to sql syntax.

the excel formula goes as follows:
Remaining Contract Length: 

=IF(SalesOrderTypeCode="Blanket", ContractEndDate-IF(TodaysDate > ContractStartDate,IF(TodaysDate>ContractEndDate, ContractEndDate, TodaysDate),ContractStartDate)+1, 0)

Open in new window


I got help originally to convert the formula, but more logic was added to it this I need more help.

I currently have the formula in sql like this:

,	RemainingContractLength =
	CASE 
	        WHEN SalesOrderLineTypeCode = 'BLANKET' 
		THEN DATEDIFF(dd, @Today, ContractEndDate) + 1 
		ELSE 0 
	END

Open in new window


Thank you very much for your help.

You can nest, not tested but something like:

CASE
WHEN SalesOrderTypeCode="Blanket"
THEN DATEDIFF(dd, ContractEndDate,
      CASE WHEN TodaysDate > ContractStartDate THEN
            CASE WHEN TodaysDate>ContractEndDate THEN ContractEndDate ELSE TodaysDate END
      ELSE ContractStartDate END) + 1 ELSE 0 END

thank you.

somehow the number of days is not coming up the same when i run it on sql server.

i am attaching the excel file, if you notice, for row 13, the number on column Remaining Contract Length if 214, but in sql server comes back as 212

I am also attaching sample data from sql server

I get -295 using your sample data with:

CASE
WHEN SalesOrderTypeCode='Blanket'
THEN DATEDIFF(dd, ContractEndDate,
      CASE WHEN GETDATE() > ContractStartDate THEN
            CASE WHEN GETDATE()>ContractEndDate THEN ContractEndDate ELSE GETDATE() END
      ELSE ContractStartDate END) + 1 ELSE 0 END

214 for row 13 values now:

select CASE
WHEN SalesOrderTypeCode='Blanket'
THEN DATEDIFF(dd,
      CASE WHEN Today > ContractStartDate THEN
            CASE WHEN Today>ContractEndDate THEN ContractEndDate ELSE Today END
      ELSE ContractStartDate END, ContractEndDate) + 1 ELSE 0 END  from test
