 Posted - 02/14/2013 :  16:56:46 I have the following formula from a crystal report..Looking to see if its possible to create a daysdif in SQL ..First part calculated which date to use as a start date depending on the criteria of the if's it decides which date to use Second part cals which to use for the end dateThen it writes out the daysdif in days beween start and end datesI was thinking I could come up witha daysdiff which a bunch of if's in it?Thanks//Local Datevar Start;Local Datevar End;If (cdate({APPOINTMENT.EffDate}) <= {?date}-27 And cdate({APPOINTMENT.Expdate}) in {?date}-27 to {?date}-21)Then Start:={?date}-28elseif (cdate({APPOINTMENT.EffDate}) < {?date}-27 and cdate({APPOINTMENT.Expdate})> {?date}-21)then start:={?date}-28elseif (cdate({APPOINTMENT.EffDate}) in {?date}-27 to {?date}-21)thenstart:=cdate({APPOINTMENT.EffDate}-1) ;// endIf ({APPOINTMENT.EffDate} <= {?date}-27 And {APPOINTMENT.Expdate} in {?date}-27 to {?date}-21)ThenEnd:=cdate({APPOINTMENT.Expdate})elseif ({APPOINTMENT.EffDate} < {?date}-27 and {APPOINTMENT.Expdate}> {?date}-21)thenend:={?date}-21elseif (cdate({APPOINTMENT.EffDate}) in {?date}-27 to {?date}-21 and cdate({APPOINTMENT.Expdate}) > {?date}-21)thenend:={?date}-21;//tart:=endDatediff("d",Start, End)Thanks
