Problem in the script?


Attached is the script where I am facing problem. I am just using a column "Service Date ", to find out the months and further calculating employees based on that. But when i wrote the followin script in load , its not working:

month(date#([Service Date],'MM/DD/YYYY')) as Cal_month

I think it should display month and should work properly.

Please help me figure out any error.

Thank you

Hi Yaman,

I think you should use date() instead of date#() since the date()-function expects a number as first parameter, and date#() a text and I suppose the excel-interface "delivers" a number.

Hi Yaman,

I notice the post is more than one year old. I know by this time, you would have resolved this simple aspect. Still I am replying as the status remains 'Not Answered'.

Service Date is already loaded in your document as date only in mm/dd/yyyy format.

So Date# is not required here as it is used to convert string to date. Date(Service Date, 'DD-MMM-YYYY') gives formatted date.
