    Date format in the RPD

    ABujji
      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.

      Thanks

          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
