Hi All,

I am trying to Select data for 6 days from a DB2 Table in a Cobol program

WHERE clause I am providing is as below

Code:
WHERE DATE_COLUMN BETWEEN (:WS-INPUT-DATE - 6 DAYS) AND :WS-INPUT-DATE


But this is giving sql error code as -401

This query works fine in SPUFI

Here WS-INPUT-DATE coming from Input file

I tried like below as well
Code:
WHERE DATE_COLUMN BETWEEN DATE (DAYS(:WS-INPUT-DATE) - 6 DAYS) AND :WS-INPUT-DATE


But still no luck..

If I calculate WS-INPUT-DATE - 6 days outside sql query and provide it as Host variable it works fine.

I am just looking for if I am missing something and it's possible in Db2 query itself

Thanks in advance

Regards,
Chandan

Hi Guys,

My bad I got the soulution for this

I changed it as below

Code:
WHERE DATE_COLUMN BETWEEN DATE (DAYS(:WS-INPUT-DATE) - 6 ) AND :WS-INPUT-DATE


I should have used 6 instead of 6 days

Regards,
Chandan
