hi Friends,

I need to find the difference in two timestamps and covert the difference in minutes. Once that is done, I need to check, if that difference in greater than 15 minutes or not.

I think, I would need to move the difference to a number so that I can compare it with 15. I am not sure.

Table A has a column Last_Timestamp. Another timestamp is CURRENT_TIMESTAMP. I am trying below things - >

A) IF (SELECT 24*60*(CURRENT_TIMESTAMP - Last_Timestamp)
From TransactionStatus TS
Where TS.TransactionReferenceID= Key) > 15


B) SELECT (1440 * (TS.LAST_TIMESTMP - CURRENT_TIMESTAMP)) INTO emailTimeDifference FROM CAQH_O.transaction_status TS WHERE TS.transactionreferenceid = variableKey.EMAILKEY;
IF (emailTimeDifference > 15) then

I get error as "inconsistant data type.


Please suggest the answers. I appriciate the help.

Thanks.

Thanks Mik. I was trying below query

select LAST_TIMESTMP, current_timestamp, DateDiff(minute,LAST_TIMESTMP ,CURRENT_TIMESTAMP) from
CAQH_O.transaction_status
where
transactionreferenceid='20121114161324042270_000545';

but it is complaning about DateDiff function saying, "DATEDIFF": invalid identifier" . Does it mean, it is not recognizing this function.

suggest me.

Thanks,
