comparison date field is blank in qlik incremental load

Hi All,

 

In the incremental load for the insert logic my date field is showing as a blank.

Below is the piece of code for this.

$(IncrTimestampAttr) >=to_date('$(vL.Last_Exec_$(TableName))', 'YYYY-MM-DD HH:MI:SS')
AND
$(IncrTimestampAttr) <to_date('$(vL.This_Exec_$(TableName))', 'YYYY-MM-DD HH:MI:SS')

I am passing update date to the variable IncrTimestampAttr. 

 

Do i need to use peek to retrieve for the max value for the variable IncrTimestampAttr.

Can you please suggest in this.

Thanks,

IncrTimestampAttr Has to be a field name and not the date value.

Hi, 

PFB screenshot. We are passing the column in the variable.

Hi,

PFA.

I have attached the sample code.

We are using the same excel structure that are mentioned in the conversation.

our  UPDATE_DATE  's format is 2021-01-23 13:10:23.000000.

Can you please suggest the possible way to compare the dates with the above format with the oracle db date for the incremental load.

Thanks

did you check (for one iteration) if the variable evaluated for 

vL.This_Exec_$(TableName)

has a value and is it in the rt format?

Hi Edwin,

The format is right. The problem is with Oracle date converiin. Whenever I am using to_char it is removing trailing 0 and . From the string.

But after using to_date the same string reappears.

 

So the comparison is failed.

 

Thanks

If I understand it right the Qlik variables does exists and have also the right values and formats. The issues are occurring by the conversion/formatting with the oracle-functions. In this case you will be get better hints and examples by any of the oracle communities.

Beside this I suggest to consider if you could change for the comparison the variables and the appropriate oracle fields to purely numeric values.

It's in general recommended to make all kind of calculations and matchings with pure numeric values to avoid all the conversion/formatting trouble and even it mean that some fields needs to be loaded twice within the data it may be more performant because all the conversion/formatting stuff will also have some performance efforts.
