Hello experts, I have a table that contains a date field and a time field examples: Date/HYYMDs (2003/01/02 00:00:00.000) Time/A5 (13:23)
Is there an easy way to add the two so I woud get a new date field (2003/01/02 13:23:00.000) ?This message has been edited. Last edited by: <Kathryn Henning>,

These are really the basics of WebFOCUS you are asking for and that is not what this forum is meant for.
Please look into 'Concatenating Character Strings' (found in Help function Developer Studio for example). Also, see if you are able to follow an Information Builders course to get you started with the product.

There are several ways to do this - here's one of them: convert the 'time' field to numeric number of minutes, then add it to the 'date' field:
DEFINE FILE CAR
DATE1/HYYMDs WITH COUNTRY = HINPUT(8, '20030102', 8, 'HYYMDs');
TIME1/A5 = '13:23';
TABLE FILE CAR
COMPUTE TIME1_HM/I6 = ( EDIT( EDIT(TIME1,'99$$$') ) * 60 ) + EDIT( EDIT(TIME1,'$$$99') ); NOPRINT
COMPUTE DATE2/HYYMDs = HADD(DATE1, 'MINUTE', TIME1_HM, 8, 'HYYMDs');
WHERE RECORDLIMIT EQ 1
Line 11: Use EDIT to extract the Hours, convert it to numeric using another EDIT, then multiply it by 60 minutes, then use EDIT to extract the Minutes, convert it to numeric using another EDIT, then add it to the converted Hours.
