Hi,
I need to calculate next year date by using current syatem date.

ex: todays date i will be getting in RUN-CCYY and i want to calculate tax for next year ?
ws-hold-ccyy = RUN-CCYY +1
is it correct to calculate the same. This process always runs before 01/01/xx or the beginning of the new year. it depends on the client.

True if you run the program before the new year..... but not for the second case.

How about trying the same using DB2

Code:
SELECT CURRENT DATE + 1 YEAR
       FROM SYSIBM.SYSDUMMY1;

The process has been discussed a few times...

first things to consider ...

DATES ARE TRICKY TO WORK ON..

it makes no sense to carry on normal arithmetic operations on them

adding 1 to the day might go to next month
adding one to the month might go to next year
adding one to the year might switch to/from a leap year

( if You subtract c/next/previous)

the Business needs and constraints must be clearly understood
before a solution can be safely implemented
