AS400 Query, Subtract 24 hours

AS400 Query, Subtract 24 hours

(OP)
Hi....am trying to build a query in the AS400, we are currently using, V05R03M00 IBM AS400.  In my query, I have two fields:  DATECOLL 'yyyy-mm-dd' and TIMECOLL 'hh:mm:ss'.
I need all tests that were collected 24 hours ago from the date/time the query is run.  I've tried everything I can think of and keep getting incorrect information.  Can someone help me with this?  I need it to be set up in define results field so that I can schedule it to run on it's own every morning at 1am.  Would appreciate any help I can get!!!  Thank you!!!

RE: AS400 Query, Subtract 24 hours

Define result fields...

YESTDATE = CHAR(CURRENT(DATE) - 1 DAY, ISO)
YESTTIME = CURRENT(TIME) - 24 HOURS

If you want to run it for yesterday's results, just say
DATECOLL EQ YESTDATE

If you need a RANGE, that will have to work differently. Let me know if you need more.

Thanks so much!!! That worked perfect....I think I was making it more difficult than it was!!!!  Thanks again!

RE: AS400 Query, Subtract 24 hours

I have a variabl field, and want to select a range of dates from 2 months before cureent date , until current date.

RE: AS400 Query, Subtract 24 hours

Use the same logic.

Define results.
YESTDATE = CHAR(CURRENT(DATE) - 2 MONTHS, ISO)

Select records.
DATECOLL GE YESTDATE

or for a range two months ago through yesterday...

Define results.
LMONTH = CHAR(CURRENT(DATE) - 2 MONTHS, ISO)
YESTDATE = CHAR(CURRENT(DATE) - 1 DAY, ISO)

Select records.
DATECOLL RANGE LMONTH YESTDATE
