NSC | Mastering Time Arithmetic in SQL using NetSuite2.com data source

edited Apr 9, 2024 7:27PM in SuiteCloud / Customization

Performing time arithmetic in SQL involves adding or subtracting a fraction of a day to a given date or timestamp. The logic is simple: to add a certain amount of time, you add a fraction of a day, and to subtract time, you subtract the corresponding fraction.

For instance, suppose you want to add or subtract 60 minutes from a given date. Since there are 1440 minutes in a day (24 hours * 60 minutes), you would add or subtract 60/1440 (or 1/24) of a day.

Here's a breakdown of the process:

To add time: You add the fraction of a day to the date.

To subtract time: You subtract the fraction of a day from the date.
