Hello all. I am new at this and I would like to try and figure out how to run this for current day - 1. I have begindate and enddate which forces the user to input dates, but I am just looking at grab everything for the prev business date. I am using Report Assistant, is there a Parameter I can use in the Selection Criteria to do this? I know there is tons of information about Date/Time, but I am having a hard time finding anything with Report Assistant.

Thanks

Matt,

Whenever I have wanted to do things like that I would use the &YYMD command to pull in todays date. something like this:

DEFINE FILE CAR
CURRDATE/YYMD=&YYMD;
PREVDATE/YYMD=CURRDATE-1;
END

If you want a quick win in RA this is messy and you may be better off getting the user to enter the last business date.

AND (TRACKING.TRACKING.BUSINESSDATE EQ DT(&EnterLastBusinessDate)

Otherwise

You will have to define a field

TODAY/MDYY WITH TRACKING.TRACKING.BUSINESSDATE = '&DATEMDYY' ;
LSTBUSDAY/MDYY = DATEMOV(TODAY,'BD-') ;

and include

WHERE TRACKING.TRACKING.BUSINESSDATE EQ LSTBUSDAY in the where clauses

This will work but run like a pig since wf will be carrying out the date screening not the rdbms


Outside RA you can do this more neatly but if you want to stick with RA get the user to enter the date!

Thanks for the help. After a few attempts, I decided just to leave it with the begin and end dates. This will probably work better for us.

-* subtract 1 from current date also get current month and year from system date
-SET &TODAY = &YYMD - 1;
-SET &CYR = EDIT(&TODAY,'9999$$$$');
-SET &CMO = EDIT(&TODAY,'$$$$99$$');
-SET &CDA = EDIT(&TODAY,'$$$$$$99');
-SET &YESTERDAY = &CYR ||'/'||&CMO||'/'||&CDA;
-TYPE &TODAY
-TYPE &YESTERDAY

WHERE TRACKING.TRACKING.BUSINESSDATE EQ '&YESTERDAY';
