Trying to create an OTBI Filter to convert string to DATE with current YEAR

Accepted answer


Hi, I am trying to create an OTBI analyses that takes a DFF ATTRIBUTE5 in text format with the month and day, and then compares it to the date of the current year . The DFF ATTRIBUTE5 is text format and would have the format "mm-dd" e.g. "11-24"

I found the function to convert a string into a DATE is : DATE 'yyyy-mm-dd'

I then can find the current year, YEAR(CURRENT_DATE) , but I cannot seem to find the correct format .

Content (required):

This is the normal SQL where :

TO_DATE(EXTRACT(YEAR FROM SYSDATE)||'-'||ATTRIBUTE5,'yyyy-mm-dd') = trunc(sysdate)


Howdy, Stranger!
