Declaring an expression in the load script - System Monitor

Hello all

I have developed a System Monitor as one of my projects and we are at a stage where my team needs to monitor the activity of the users.  We are looking at a 60 day flag, to tell us who hasnt accessed any application in 60 days or more.  I have some code below that is used as a calculated expression in a pivot table but I would want to declare this in the load script.

I want to do this so I can add it to a list box and choose what users have accessed an application after 60 days.  The flag works in the expression but, with it being on a pivot table I am not able to select all users, I can only select one for some reason.

Any help would be appreciated and my expression for my 60 day flag is below.

Thanks

=If(Left((Num(Today())),5)-Left(Num(Max([FK_Date])),5) >=60, 1,0)

In the script, may be like:

Load

     If(Left((Num(Today())),5)-Left(Num(Max([FK_Date])),5) >=60, 1,0) as 60DayFlag

Hi,

use the same expression. Load it in the resident table and use it as a field.

Sorry my code seemed to be a bit off, I have declared it without the equals sign and also used the alias to mark it as 60 day flag.

I have set up the resident table in a new tab on the load script and it doesnt seem to be working.  I have edited the expression to see if it works by calling 'MakeDate'.

When I run this it tells me I have an invalid expression.

SixtyDayFlag:
LOAD

If(Left((Num(Today())),5)-Left(Num(Max(Session_Date)),5) >=60, 1,0) AS SixtyDayFlag,
If(MakeDate((Num(Today())),5)-MakeDate(Num(Max(Session_Date)),5) >=60, 1,0) AS SixtyDayFlagOne,
Session_Date

Resident Session
;

Hi

Is this how you wanted it? This is working fine with me.

  Sample date::

New:

LOAD * Inline
[
FK_Date
1/2/2014
2/2/2014
]
;
load
If(Left((Num(Today())),5)-Left(Num(Max([FK_Date])),5) >=60, 1,0) as 60
Resident New;
drop Table New;

HTH,

This code seems to be loading the Sixty day flag in, however it is only giving me the option of '1' in the list box.  This means I can't choose between people greater or lower than 60days of access

Hi,

I tried that but its not working out because the if statement cannot produce the name with the difference.
