As of December 1, 2020, Focal Point is retired and repurposed as a reference repository. We value the wealth of knowledge that's been shared here over the years. You'll continue to have access to this treasure trove of knowledge, for search purposes only.
New TIBCO Community Coming Soon
In early summer, TIBCO plans to launch a new community—with a new user experience, enhanced search, and expanded capabilities for member engagement with answers and discussions! In advance of that, the current myibi community will be retired on April 30. We will continue to provide updates here on both the retirement of myibi and the new community launch.
What You Need to Know about Our New Community
We value the wealth of knowledge and engagement shared by community members and hope the new community will continue cultivating networking, knowledge sharing, and discussion.
During the transition period, from April 20th until the new community is launched this summer, myibi users should access the TIBCO WebFOCUS page to engage.
To use the Date-Time functions in Dialogue Manager, you need to convert the string to a Date-Time field and then convert it back to a string after the function is processed.
It looks daunting, but if you look at each part of the DM line of code, it's easy:
HINPUT(inputlength, 'inputstring', length, outfield) - Converts an Alphanumeric String to a Date-Time Value HADD(value, 'component', increment, length, outfield) - Increments a Date-Time Value HCNVRT(value, '(fmt)', length, outfield) - Converts a Date-Time Value to Alphanumeric Format
WHERE DATE_TIME_COLUMN GE '&NEW_DTTM'

Believe it or not, this is actually a good example of where the report painter does a good job. If you run it through that, it should put the DT() in there for you. Also, for what it's worth, in my experience, the DT() function only works with static (amper) values -- NOT with columns/defines... I believe it will actually throw an error if you try anything else.
Glad you got it working though.
