[CLOSED] Payment report date filter
 Login/Join

I am a newbie at WebFocus Info Assist.

I have a daily payment summary report. I have the filter set to the payment date = today's date (hard coded), the report is on a scheduler which runs at 11:45pm to capture payments made for the day.

How do I eliminate editing the today's date (hard coded) on a daily basis?
I would also like to capture payments made on weekends and holidays, but our office is closed and I am not able to capture the information, unless I manually change the today's date (hard coded) the next working day, then manually running the report.

Please assist, thank you.

Lou Palomo

Hi Lou,

Look into system and statistical variables within the online documentation. Substitute your hard-coded date with &YYMD or whatever date format you're comparing against.

What's the format of PAYMENT_DATE? Under DATA tab DEFINE a new field called CURR_DATE and set it to &YYMD

Then use it to compare payment date with this field.

WHERE PAYMENT_DATE EQ CURR_DATE;

DEFINE FILE ORDERS
CURR_DATE/HYYMD=&YYMD ;
END

TABLE FILE ORDERS
BY CUSTOMERID
BY PAYMENT_DATE

WHERE PAYMENT_DATE EQ CURR_DATE;
ON TABLE PCHOLD FORMAT HTML
END
