Hi,

Is there any INTRINSIC function to deduct minutes from timestamp.?

One timestamp will be passed to my COBOL program as Parm. In another PARM, i will be recieving a numeric value for MINUTES. I have to reduce this many minutes from the given time stamp. After deducting the minutes, if hour changes, i have to handle that. If time changes i have to handle that also.

For e.g. if timestamp passed to my cobol program is :
ws-in-ts ==> 2008-10-06-00.25.00.000000

If MINUTES to be deducted (passed as parm to my cobol program) is:
ws-in-min ==> 65

After deduction ws-result-ts should be ==> 2008-10-05-11.20.00.000000

similarly - If ws-in-ts ==> 2009-01-01-01.05.00.000000 and ws-in-min is 120, ws-res-ts should be ==> 2008-12-31-11.05.00.000000

Is there any intrinsic function to handle such scenarios?

SORRY..i gave wrong output in results: it should be 24 hour format:

For e.g. if timestamp passed to my cobol program is :
ws-in-ts ==> 2008-10-06-00.25.00.000000

If MINUTES to be deducted (passed as parm to my cobol program) is:
ws-in-min ==> 65

After deduction ws-result-ts should be ==> 2008-10-05-23.20.00.000000

similarly,
If ws-in-ts ==> 2009-01-01-01.05.00.000000 and ws-in-min is 120, ws-res-ts should be ==> 2008-12-31-23.05.00.000000
