Code to run for Last full month, not current month in Crystal and also what would be code for Teradata.

Want to schedule a report in crystal and would like to run for previous full month. How do you modify this line so that it always runs for previous full month. Report will be ran on 8th day of each month for the previous Full month.

 CAST (pat_enc.contact_date AS DATE) BETWEEN '2017-08-01' AND '2017-08-31'

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Try the following:

CAST (pat_enc.contact_date AS DATE) IN LASTFULLMONTH

Open in new window

mlmccCommented:
I assume that is part of a Crystal Command

That shoud work

You can also do it in the Selection Formula

Date({pat_enc.contact_date}) in LastFullMonth

not sure how to add either of these suggestions to my crystal.    Here is what my selection formula looks like. How would i encorporate the Cast or Date suggestions?

{Command.APPT_STATUS_C} = 2 and
{Command.BENEFIT_GROUP} startswith ["PROVPREV", "SURGCOLO"] and
{Command.CPT_CODE} startswith ["44388", "44389", "44392", "44393", "44394", "44401", "45300", "45305", "45308", "45309", "45315", "45320", "45330", "45331", "45333", "45338", "45346", "45378", "45380", "45383", "45384", "45385", "45388", "74261", "74262", "74263", "G0104", "G0105", "G0106", "G0120", "G0121", "G6019", "G6024"]

Try it this way

{Command.APPT_STATUS_C} = 2 and
{Command.BENEFIT_GROUP} startswith ["PROVPREV", "SURGCOLO"] and
 {Command.CPT_CODE} startswith ["44388", "44389", "44392", "44393", "44394", "44401", "45300", "45305", "45308", "45309", "45315", "45320", "45330", "45331", "45333", "45338", "45346", "45378", "45380", "45383", "45384", "45385", "45388", "74261", "74262", "74263", "G0104", "G0105", "G0106", "G0120", "G0121", "G6019", "G6024"]
AND  Date({pat_enc.contact_date}) in LastFullMonth

Neither suggested solution worked for my issue.  I ended up using this to resolve my issue. If it helps anyone else trying to pull for lastfullmonth

my solution:
PAT_ENC.CONTACT_DATE BETWEEN (ADD_MONTHS(CURRENT_DATE,-1) -  DAYOFMONTH(ADD_MONTHS(CURRENT_DATE,-1)) +1)  AND CURRENT_DATE -  DAYOFMONTH(CURRENT_DATE)
