[SOLVED] Statement for Late and Late by 60 Minutes Recognition

I am trying to write an if statement with 2 conditions.... one of them being if it has been longer than 60 minutes and the other condition is that it is "late". Example, I am trying to determine when shipments are late over an hour but I don't want it to count when shipments are early, just when they are late. Here is the equation I had originally buts its counting when shipments are greater than 60 minutes early as well:

IF HDIFF ( SHIPMENT_INDIVIDUAL_MOVE_COSTING.LOAD_DATE_FIELDS.SL_LD_DROP_ACTUAL_DATE , SHIPMENT_INDIVIDUAL_MOVE_COSTING.LOAD_DATE_FIELDS.SL_LD_DROP_APPT_START_DATE , 'Minute' , 'D6' ) GT 60 THEN 1 ELSE 0

Any assistance or thoughts are appreciated.... I feel stuck

Is this IF part of a DEFINE? Also how do you detect Early from Late is that another field?


Thank you for using Focal Point!

Compare using an HADD instead. I don't fully understand your fields and logic, but the pseudo-code would be like this --

If HADD(Start_Date, 'Minutes', 60) < Actual_Date THEN 1 ELSE 0;

That is, if the start date plus 60 minutes is still less than the delivery date, it's late.

I don't have a WF manual available, so that's an estimate of what the HADD function looks like!

Your Function is OK, although I would use the simplified DTDIFF(SL_LD_DROP_ACTUAL_DATE , SL_LD_DROP_APPT_START_DATE , MINUTE) instead to optimize SQL. 60 min early would be -60 so that wouldn't pass your GT 60 condition.


Test: WF 8.2
Prod: WF 8.2
DB: Progress, REST, IBM UniVerse/UniData, SQLServer, MySQL, PostgreSQL, Oracle, Greenplum, Athena.

This is part of a define. I am currently not detecting early from late in another field. I can physically look and see if something is early or late from the dates shown but I do not have an equation setup (other than the one I wrote above) that detects early vs late.
