ToDate(userstring, format, timezone)
|2||CurrentTime() returns the date-time object of the current time.|
Returns the day of a month
from the date-time object.
|4||GetHour(datetime) Returns the hour of a day from the date-time object.|
|5||GetMilliSecond(datetime) Returns the millisecond of a second from the date-time object.|
|6||GetMinute(datetime) Returns the minute of an hour from the date-time object.|

|8||GetSecond(datetime) Returns the second of a minute from the date-time object.|
|9||GetWeek(datetime) Returns the week of a year from the date-time object.|
|10||GetWeekYear(datetime) Returns the week year from the date-time object.|
|11||GetYear(datetime) Returns the year from the date-time object.|
|12||AddDuration(datetime, duration) Returns the result of a date-time object along with the duration object.|
|13||SubtractDuration(datetime, duration) Subtracts the Duration object from the Date-Time object and returns the result.|
|14||DaysBetween(datetime1, datetime2) Returns the number of days between the two date-time objects.|
|15||HoursBetween(datetime1, datetime2) Returns the number of hours between two date-time objects.|
|16||MilliSecondsBetween(datetime1, datetime2) Returns the number of milliseconds between two date-time objects.|
|17||MinutesBetween(datetime1, datetime2) Returns the number of minutes between two date-time objects.|
|18||MonthsBetween(datetime1, datetime2) Returns the number of months between two date-time objects.|
|19||SecondsBetween(datetime1, datetime2) Returns the number of seconds between two date-time objects.|
|20||WeeksBetween(datetime1, datetime2) Returns the number of weeks between two date-time objects.|
|21||YearsBetween(datetime1, datetime2) Returns the number of years between two date-time objects.|
We have the following code
We want to split the files by date and the rules that we are putting in Split statement it gives me error...
How can we transform TimeStamp (used on transf statement) in Date to make the comparasion ?
- We get the datetime object from ToDate, use GetYear(),GetMonth(),GetDay() on the datetime object and use CONCAT to construct only the date.
- ToDate gives the date-time for the particular object.
- Its one of the function which is frequently used according to the user needs.
The below code shows how to use Todate function.
