Is the date between those 2 dates

I have some product, and the date they have been created

ProductProd-End
CA-2002015-04-07
CA-2002015-04-07
CA-2002015-04-07

CA-2002015-06-15

 

I also have a DB that returns me a value (Time)  if the production end date (Prod-End) is between the Start and End dates

CA-20051999-01-012015-10-04
CA-200112015-10-052016-11-02

Hi @david20100

 

Looks like you want to start out with an inner join on the two data sets with [Product] = [Product]. 

 

Then use the multifield formula to say (for a new named field)

IF [Prod-End] > [Start] and [Prod-End] < [End] THEN 0 ELSE 1 ENDIF

 

This should flag all product line entries that were created outside of the date range with a "1". 

 

Hope this helps. 

 

EDIT: You can also use the filter function after the join and filter the date based on the above stated criteria.

 

Thanks,

Cameron

Maybe i'm not clear in my explanation

 

For this example

ProductProd-End
CA-2002015-04-07

 

It should return me 5 for that entry because its between those 2 dates

ProductTimeStartEnd

Hi @david20100

 

My apologies, I misunderstood. 

 

The following change should accomplish what you are looking for: 

 

IF [Prod-End] > [Start] and [Prod-End] < [End] THEN [Time] ELSE 0 ENDIF

 

This will return 0 when it's not between those 2 dates and the value in the [Time] field when it is. Feel free to replace 0 with whatever you want to show up when it isn't between the date range.

Let me know. 

 

Thanks,

Cam

Thanks that's a good idea, after that formula i applied a filter to remove all 0 to keep only the good data

 

thanks again
