    Calculating Delay between 2 dates

      Hi All,

      Please help me out in writing the expression or at script level.

      I need to find the delay in no days.

      Based on

      1.1st Occurrence date of Forecast date and Last Occurrence date of Event Date and both should be Greater than Creation Date.

      2. Decision should be Pass.

      3. Also should calculate if Forecast Date of the Stage should be greater than previous pass Event Date

      Example - While calculating Phase 2 Col 12 Forecast date is Greater than Col 9 Event date and it is passed at Phase 1 on 10/7/2014

          hi Vamsi,


          in order to calculate the delays you can use floor function like:


          =floor(date 1)- floor(date 2) as [delay in no of days]

                                      Thankyou anbu ,

                                      Actually i edited the excel and posted here. in the application the fields are in different qvs source files,

                                      how to load the specific fields into a single table we required from that different QVS files,

                                      which method Resident load or apply map will work?

                                          If you have key, value pair then use Apply map else join different QVS sources in script

                                                  RecNo is not present in table [SSG Slippage]. So you got that error.


                                                  Add this to table [SSG Slippage]

                                                  AutoNumber(RecNo(),SSG_PRJ_ID&SSG_Event_Phase_Review_Name) As RecNo

                                                  Why do you have two tables [SSG Slippage] and [SSG Slippage_1] with so many common fields? This will generate synthetic keys. You could have joined result of Firstsortedvalue() to table [SSG Slippage] directly like my script
