&&LAST_M = '2020/08/01' given YYMD type
&&LAST_MD = '2020/08/31' given YYMD type
&&THIS_MONTH_FIRST_DAY = '20200801' given A8
and as following with:
&&LAST_M = 43,678.00 (without given type)
&&LAST_MD = 43,708.00 (without given type)
&&THIS_MONTH_FIRST_DAY = 20,2009,901.00 (without given type)
when I try using above global variable within SQL like:
SQL PREPARE SQLIN FROM
T1.shipping_date < '&&LAST_M'
and I get following error:
1 FILE(S) LOADED
(FOC14050) DATE IS EXPECTED ON LINE 27 AT ''43678''
(FOC009) Request failed validation, not executed.
I assuming &&LAST_M should be '2020/08/01' but as it appear it does not. So I'm guessing within SQL the global variable is not given as Date type(where &&LAST_M = 43678) to compare as date format. Is there a way to SET global variable as Date format WITHOUT Define any field to specify format for &&LAST_M?(Or any other specific format)This message has been edited. Last edited by: nox,
