date calculation - 12th of last month

date calculation - 12th of last month

(OP)
Hi,

Can you please let me know if there is an easier way of calculation from todays date the 12.th of last month as this one here:

CODE

date(trim(Char(YEAR(CURRENT DATE - 1 MONTH)))||'-'|| trim(Char(MONTH(CURRENT DATE - 1 MONTH)))||'-12') 

Looks so complex for this simple task. Thanks

RE: date calculation - 12th of last month

That appears reasonably "easy" to me?

What might you prefer? As long as you only want 12th of last month (from today - either before or after midnight) what you hae should sufice.

RE: date calculation - 12th of last month

You could go 'slightly' easier with:

SELECT CURRENT DATE - 1 MONTH - DAY(CURRENT DATE)DAYS + 12 DAYS
FROM SYSIBM.SYSDUMMY1

Which at least keeps everything as a date through the calculation.... but gets you the same result.
