RELEASE THE YEAR OUT OF DATE FIELD

RELEASE THE YEAR OUT OF DATE FIELD

RELEASE THE YEAR OUT OF DATE FIELD

(OP)
Hi,

I'm using MSSQL and WF 4.36.
I have a date type field and I want to create
a compute field which contains the year of the date field.
I keep getting the same number for different years,
which is not the year but an unknown number.
The master file has the following format for the field: YYMD

Any help is appreciated.
Regards,
OZ

RE: RELEASE THE YEAR OUT OF DATE FIELD

Let's suppose TESTDT is your YYMD field. Then the following compute:

         ATESTDT/A8YYMD=TESTDT;

should work. Once you get ATESTDT, a simple EDIT will give you whatever parts of the date you want.

RE: RELEASE THE YEAR OUT OF DATE FIELD

Hi Oz,

As your date field is stored in YYMD format, you can use the following in a define or compute:

YEAR/YY=DATE;

you can do the same for month or day by changing YY to M or D.

Tewy
