Salesforce.com Date Format in Script Date Variable

I'm connecting to SFDC via the Qlikview API.  The format of the "Created Date" field in the EVENT object looks like this:



I'm trying to create a variable to use instead which pulls for the last 6 months.  I've tried the formula below, but it's not working...


Let  vDate = TimeStamp((Floor(AddMonths(Today(),-5)) - Floor(Day(Today()))+1),'YYYY-MM-DD 00:00:00');

When I run the script it just appears "frozen", instead of running the query.  Any thoughts?

Thanks,  Dan

Re: Salesforce.com Date Format in Script Date Variable

Your varaible vDate has value 2014-11-01 00:00:00.  I assume this is what you want.  And, I assume, you want to load the data after vDate.  That is, you need to convert format 2015-01-01T00:00:00.000Z to YYYY-MM-DD hh:mm:ss.  Can be done like this, for example:

timestamp(timestamp#(purgechar(CreateDate,'TZ'), 'YYYY-MM-DDhh:mm:ss.fff'), 'YYYY-MM-DD hh:mm:ss') as CreateDate.

After this you can use vDate to compare the new XCreate Date with it.
