How would I write a query to see if "one date is 1 day after another date?

Title changed from "query help" to "query to see if one date is 1 day after another date?" : Priyesh.

Maybe you can adapt this to your need

Code:

SELECT DT.DATE1,                                                   
       DT.DATE2,                                                   
       CAST(DAY(DATE(DT.DATE1) - DATE(DT.DATE2)) AS DEC(5)) AS DAYS,
       CASE                                                         
         WHEN DAY(DATE(DT.DATE1) - DATE(DT.DATE2)) = 1             
           THEN 'Y'                                                 
         WHEN DAY(DATE(DT.DATE1) - DATE(DT.DATE2)) = -1             
           THEN 'Y'                                                 
         ELSE 'N'                                                   
       END AS ONE_DAY                                               
  FROM                                                             
      (SELECT '2006-12-12'   AS DATE1,                             
              '2006-12-13'   AS DATE2                               
         FROM SYSIBM.SYSDUMMY1                                     
       UNION ALL                                                   
       SELECT '2006-12-12'   AS DATE1,                             
              '2006-12-12'   AS DATE2                               
         FROM SYSIBM.SYSDUMMY1                                     
       UNION ALL                       
       SELECT '2006-12-13'   AS DATE1,   
              '2006-12-12'   AS DATE2     
         FROM SYSIBM.SYSDUMMY1           
       UNION ALL                         
       SELECT '2007-01-01'   AS DATE1,   
              '2006-12-31'   AS DATE2     
         FROM SYSIBM.SYSDUMMY1           
       UNION ALL                         
       SELECT '2007-01-01'   AS DATE1,   
              '2007-01-03'   AS DATE2     
         FROM SYSIBM.SYSDUMMY1           
       ) DT


Result

Code:

   +----------------------------------------------+
   |   DATE1    |   DATE2    |   DAYS   | ONE_DAY |
   +----------------------------------------------+
 1_| 2006-12-12 | 2006-12-13 |     -1   | Y       |
 2_| 2006-12-12 | 2006-12-12 |      0   | N       |
 3_| 2006-12-13 | 2006-12-12 |      1   | Y       |
 4_| 2007-01-01 | 2006-12-31 |      1   | Y       |
 5_| 2007-01-01 | 2007-01-03 |     -2   | N       |
   +----------------------------------------------+

The DAYS function returns an integer representation of a date.
Assuming that the "dates" are in a suitable "date" format, subtract and compare....

How about keeping it a little simpler... icon_rolleyes.gif
Code:
CASE                                                         
         WHEN DATE1 + 1 DAY = DATE2
           THEN 'Y'                                                 
         WHEN DATE2 + 1 DAY = DATE1
           THEN 'Y'                                                 
         ELSE 'N'                                                   
       END AS ONE_DAY 

I hope syntax is correct... I m bad at that... icon_mad.gif

priyesh,

This will work. He may have to 'CAST' date1 and date2 (if declared as CHAR(10)) to DATE datatype.
