    Calculate Future Renewal Date

    Ibrahim Qaed

      Dears,

       

      I hope you are well,

       

      I need your help here to convert excel formula to Qlikview logic to calculate the future renewal date as of today.

       

      The excel formula is:

      =EDATE(LOOKUP(TODAY(),EDATE(A2,B2*(ROW($A$1:$A$100)-1))),B2)

       

      The result will become in Formula column :

          

      StartDate

      Contract Period Per Month

      EmployeeStatusFormula
      2/7/200224JohnRenewed2/7/2018
      1/3/201524SergioRenewed1/3/2017
      10/5/201024MichaelRenewed10/5/2016
      9/9/201424SaraRenewed9/9/2016
      1/9/199024JolyRenewed1/9/2018
      4/17/201424BoadiceaRenewed4/17/2018
      5/3/201424BoadiceaRenewed5/3/2018
      6/3/201424BoadiceaRenewed6/3/2016
      6/3/201412BoadiceaRenewed6/3/2016

       

      or if there is any other expressions in Qlikview can do that, it would be great.


      can any one help me out here ?

       

      Thanks,

      Ibrahim

          I'm not sure if I understand your question right but I think you could replace EDATE() with addmonths() in combination with a makedate() function, maybe something like this:

           

          addmonths(makedate(year(today(), month(StartDate), day(StartDate)), [Contract Period Per Month])

              Hi Marcus,

               

              I know this but I need to get the future renewal date for each employee. let me explain this, if I was hired in 10-Nov-2010 and my contract period is two years(24 months) and my contract is renewed automatically each two years so my future renewal date or the end of contract date will be on 10-Nov-2016 as per today.

               

              I already got this expression from here but still it shows me that my contract will be ended on 10-Nov-2018

              Date(MakeDate(2017 + (-1*Even(Year(StartDate))), Month(StartDate), Day(StartDate))) as [End Of Contract]

               

              the below excel formula is giving me the right information but I am still trying to convert that to QLikview logic to add it in my report :

              =EDATE(LOOKUP(TODAY(),EDATE(A2,B2*(ROW($A$1:$A$100)-1))),B2)

               

              However, if there is any expression on QLikview can do that, it will be great.


              Thanks,

              Ibrahim

              Maybe like

               

              RENEW:

              LOAD *, AddMonths(StartDate, MonthDiff) as NextRenewalDate;

              LOAD *,

              Ceil(

                (year(Today())*12)+month(Today())-((year(StartDate)*12)+month(StartDate))-(Day(StartDate) > Day(Today()) )

                ,[Contract Period Per Month]) as MonthDiff

              INLINE [

              StartDate, Contract Period Per Month,Employee, Status, Formula

              2/7/2002, 24, John, Renewed, 2/7/2018

              1/3/2015, 24, Sergio, Renewed, 1/3/2017

              10/5/2010, 24, Michael, Renewed, 10/5/2016

              9/9/2014, 24, Sara, Renewed, 9/9/2016

              1/9/1990, 24, Joly, Renewed, 1/9/2018

              4/17/2014, 24, Boadicea, Renewed, 4/17/2018

              ];
