Hi All

I'm butchering my way through creating my first Informix procedure (SQL expert, Informix N00b) and I'm passing a year and month as integers.

Question:  Given year and month number, what's the function for automagically determining the last day of that year-month?  For example, year=2010 and month=9 should return the date 2010-09-30.  Should go in line 17 of the below code block.

Thanks.
Jim

CREATE PROCEDURE informix.sales_distribution(iYear int, iMonth int, iWeekNumber int)

define dtStart DATETIME YEAR TO DAY;
define dtEnd DATETIME YEAR TO DAY;

if iWeekNumber = 1 then
   let dtStart = to_date(to_char(iYear) || "-" || to_char(iMonth) + || "-01") 
   let dtEnd = to_date(to_char(iYear) || "-" || to_char(iMonth) + || "-07")
elseif iWeekNumber = 2 then 
   let dtStart = to_date(to_char(iYear) || "-" || to_char(iMonth) + || "-08") 
   let dtEnd = to_date(to_char(iYear) || "-" || to_char(iMonth) + || "-14")
elseif iWeekNumber = 3 then
   let dtStart = to_date(to_char(iYear) || "-" || to_char(iMonth) + || "-15") 
   let dtEnd = to_date(to_char(iYear) || "-" || to_char(iMonth) + || "-21")
elseif iWeekNumber = 4 then
   let dtStart = to_date(to_char(iYear) || "-" || to_char(iMonth) + || "-22") 
   let dtEnd = to_date(to_char(iYear) || "-" || to_char(iMonth) + || "-07")   -- ????
end if;

wrap what you're assigning dtEnd on line 17 in LAST_DAY(), it takes a date or datetime argument.

CREATE PROCEDURE informix.sales_distribution(iYear int, iMonth int, iWeekNumber int)

define dtStart DATETIME YEAR TO DAY;
define dtEnd DATETIME YEAR TO DAY;

if iWeekNumber = 1 then
   let dtStart = to_date(to_char(iYear) || "-" || to_char(iMonth) + || "-01") 
   let dtEnd = to_date(to_char(iYear) || "-" || to_char(iMonth) + || "-07")
elseif iWeekNumber = 2 then 
   let dtStart = to_date(to_char(iYear) || "-" || to_char(iMonth) + || "-08") 
   let dtEnd = to_date(to_char(iYear) || "-" || to_char(iMonth) + || "-14")
elseif iWeekNumber = 3 then
   let dtStart = to_date(to_char(iYear) || "-" || to_char(iMonth) + || "-15") 
   let dtEnd = to_date(to_char(iYear) || "-" || to_char(iMonth) + || "-21")
elseif iWeekNumber = 4 then
   let dtStart = to_date(to_char(iYear) || "-" || to_char(iMonth) + || "-22") 

   let dtEnd = LAST_DAY(to_date(to_char(iYear) || "-" || to_char(iMonth) + || "-07"))
end if;

I moved on to a different gig and can't verify this, but I suspect this is the correct answer.  Thanks.
