## Calculating new date based on created date + num

Hi

I'm wondering if Qilk has something similar to excel where by

I'm trying to define targeted date  from start date.

I know in excel its as easy as

= startDate + <Number>

Basically trying to check if Priority = low/medium/high/critical of a record and calculate the targeted date based on when it started.

=if({<{[Priority*]={'Low'}>}[Problem ID*+],Date(Num(Timestamp#("Submit Date",'DD/MM/YYYY hh:mm:ss'))+365),
if({<{[Priority*]={'Medium'}>}[Problem ID*+],Date(Num(Timestamp#("Submit Date",'DD/MM/YYYY hh:mm:ss'))+180),
if({<{[Priority*]={'High'}>}[Problem ID*+],Date(Num(Timestamp#("Submit Date",'DD/MM/YYYY hh:mm:ss'))+90),
if({<{[Priority*]={'Critical'}>}[Problem ID*+],Date(Num(Timestamp#("Submit Date",'DD/MM/YYYY hh:mm:ss'))+30))))

What about in qlik and also trying to make this as a master dimension however keeps giving error in expression: "Error in expression: ')' expected"

## Re: Calculating new date based on created date + num

if you want the new date, yes, you can use if as below:
If([Priority*]='Low',date(Num(Date#(datetime, 'DD/MM/YYYY hh:mm:ss'))+365.0))

## Re: Calculating new date based on created date + num

Hi, Keitaru
Have you tried this?
count({<[Priority*]={'Low'}>} date([Submit Date]+365))

## Re: Calculating new date based on created date + num

Hi ZZ,

Tried that as well didnt seem to work.
Since my Current date format is in DD/MM/YYYY hh:mm:ss does it effect the calculation?

Hi, Keitaru

Then try this
count({<[Priority*]={'Low'}>} date(Num(Date#(datetime, 'DD/MM/YYYY hh:mm:ss'))+365.0))

Hope this helps

## Re: Calculating new date based on created date + num

yup it works however what i do really want to achieve is being able to have a table display the new Date in a cell based on the above and not display the count, thought abt using if but would pick match work as well? or is there any other ways?
