I have an issue that I am hoping I can get some assistance with. I've got two(2) fields returning the difference between two(2) dates:

Out of my SQL
INS_DIFFU=DATEDIFF(D,T1.CONTRACTDATE,T2.GOVT_UFMIP_DATE_REMITTED),
INS_DIFFV=DATEDIFF(D,T1.CONTRACTDATE,T2.GOVT_VAFF_DATE_REMITTED),

Here I am trying to prepare my display field to and alpha field for printing and get the error below:


-***************************************
-*This is for the Number Days from Closing field*
-***************************************
XDIFFU/A4 =FTOA(INS_DIFFU,'(I4)',XDIFFU);
XDIFFV/A4 =FTOA(INS_DIFFV,'(I4)',XDIFFV);
DSPDFC/I10 = IF LNKEY NE LAST LNKEY AND DISPLNTYP EQ 'FHA' THEN XDIFFU
ELSE IF LNKEY NE LAST LNKEY AND DISPLNTYP EQ 'VA' THEN XDIFFV ELSE ' ';


-**************************
-*This is for the PASS/FAIL field*
-**************************
DSPASSFAIL/A4 = IF LNKEY NE LAST LNKEY AND DISPLNTYP EQ 'FHA' AND XDIFFU LE 10 THEN 'Pass'
ELSE IF LNKEY NE LAST LNKEY AND DISPLNTYP EQ 'VA' AND XDIFFV GT 10 THEN 'Fail' ELSE ' ';


(FOC266) IF .. THEN .. ELSE .. SYNTAX ERROR
0 ERROR AT OR NEAR LINE 174 IN PROCEDURE ADHOCRQ FOCEXEC *
(FOC280) COMPARISON BETWEEN COMPUTATIONAL AND ALPHA VALUES IS NOT ALLOWED
0 ERROR AT OR NEAR LINE 203 IN PROCEDURE ADHOCRQ FOCEXEC *
(FOC003) THE FIELDNAME IS NOT RECOGNIZED: DSPDFC

Any assistance would be appreciated

DSPDFC should also be a A4.
