Hi gurus,
In the rpd, I have a condition where

If (received_date- current_date) < X then ....

the received date in the database is numeric. Ex : 20040810

How do I change the date format to match the default current date in the expression builder.

    Looks like you are using this calculations based on fact table or might be physical columns.
    I would suggest to use logical columns so that you can use the date(for received_date) column your day dim.
    or else
    map the day dim to fact table and use physical expression for the same, its same as your other post with status=completed as I said in my last email.

    You have to use timestampdiff function.

    If helps mark
