Sort of jammed at the moment to work this out in details but I think I
you are not being real exact about things like weekends and such anyway
this should be adequate for analysis purposes. Otherwise to be exact
there are some ways to build the number of days in each month into a
CASE structure and add any six of them in succession starting from an an
index position based on current month number, adding the days up and
subtracting from TODAY(). At least these are the approaches I would

If it CAN be done in RB I've probably done it. All the new 8x. and 9
people just don't know what they're missing. ;)

Happy New Year folks!!

I am trying to create a purchasing report that includes the past 6
months of PUR-STK transactions from the Part Tran file. I can not seem
to get a calculation to work that would create a date 6 months previous
to the Today() function. Can anyone think of a viable solution to pull
filter these records to just the past 6 months from the date the report
is printed??

IIF(MONTH(TODAY()) <= 6, DATE(STRING(MONTH(TODAY()) + 6) + "/" +
STRING(DAY(TODAY())) + "/" + STRING(YEAR(TODAY()) - 1)),
DATE(STRING(MONTH(TODAY()) - 6) + "/" + STRING(DAY(TODAY())) + "/" +
STRING(YEAR (TODAY()))))

Thanks for any assistance!! Have a GREAT day.

Is this a BAQ report and what version of Vantager are you on?Â Progress or SQL?

I don't know if this will help, but when I have to compare a Vantage date to a date somewhere in the future or past on a BAQ reportÂ or Dashboard, I create a calculated field in my BAQ.Â For example, I have one where I need to check if the date is less then 30 days in the future, so my calculated field in the BAQ is:

Date(Integer(Today) + 30)

From one ole timer to another...try this

Today() - 180 as a calculated field. Then, select all pur-stk
transactions that are greater than or equal to this calculated field.

Sort of jammed at the moment to work this out in details but I think I would start with TODAY() - 182 or there abouts to get a rough date. If you are not being real exact about things like weekends and such anyway this should be adequate for analysis purposes. Otherwise to be exact there are some ways to build the number of days in each month into a CASE structure and add any six of them in succession starting from an an index position based on current month number, adding the days up and subtracting from TODAY(). At least these are the approaches I would start with depending on the level of accuracy needed.
