I am trying to use a date range in a CASE expression:
WHERE status = 3
AND (TRUNC (proc_date) <= SYSDATE
AND TRUNC (proc_date) >=
WHEN (TO_CHAR (SYSDATE, 'd') = 1
OR TO_CHAR (SYSDATE, 'd') = 2)
select NEXT_DAY(TRUNC(SYSDATE), 'Friday') - 7 FROM DUAL
--SYSDATE - 3 -- If Sunday or Monday, go back to prev friday
SYSDATE - 1 -- Tues thru Sat
So want to limit proc_date to between today and yesterday, except that if today is Sunday or Monday I want to use last Friday.
In the statement above, I get the error "00936 missing expression" in the SELECT in the CASE.
What am I doing wrong?
4/8/20 - I uploaded an example TableA. If the query is run today, It should return 4 records. TableA.xlsx
