Re: Differenc between dates

Sorry, the source (resident) must be of course before the condition (where):

temp:

NOCONCATENATE load

     Artikelnummer,Datum as Wareneingang_datum

Resident InitialLoad

where "Bezeichnung Buchungsart" ='Wareneingang';

Re: Differenc between dates

You could do it within a sorted resident load per Peek() or Previous() ? or you joined both dates together like:

temp:

Load article, date as startdate From xyz where info = 'start';

     left join

Load article, date as enddate From xyz where info = 'end'

final:

Load article, startdate, enddate, enddate - startdate as diffdate resident temp;

drop table temp;

Re: Differenc between dates

May be this:

Table:

LOAD * Inline [

article,     info,     date

apple,     start,     1/2/2012

cheese,   start,     3/5/2013   

cheese,     end,     6/7/2013   

apple,     end,     12/2/2016

];

NewTable:

LOAD article,

  info,

  date,

  If(article = Peek('article'), Interval(date - Peek('date'), 'D')) as Difference

Resident Table

Order By article, date;

DROP Table Table;

Re: Differenc between dates

Hi Marcus,

i run around in my data and had another idea for something i can display.

What about a KPI showing the timerange in days an article was in store from delivery to the store till it was

sold.

So we have articlenumber, amount,sold/delivery, date.

The thing is that there can be 2 deliveries of a product before even one sales.

But with diffdate i only get the datedifferenc to the last deliverie of the same product.

So maybe create a var with the amount coming in from delivery and use this as the delivery date for the diffdate expression as long its not 0.And when its 0 switch to the next delivery date, so we allways have the right date.

And an if  there is no delivery date before the sold-date i want to take the start date of the timerange.

The problem here, again i have a great idea but no clue about how i can achiev this in the right way.

So maybe u can give me some tipps.

Thanks for help in advance
