# DATE function problems

This works:

db2 SELECT DISTINCT PROBLEM_OBJECTS.PROBLEM_ID FROM PROBLEM_OBJECTS
INNER JOIN PROBLEMS ON PROBLEM_OBJECTS.PROBLEM_ID =
PROBLEMS.PROBLEM_ID WHERE INTEGER(DAYS(CURRENT DATE) -
DAYS(PROBLEMS.CLOSE_DATE)) = 365 AND PROBLEMS.CLOSE_DATE IS NOT NULL

But this doesn't:

db2 SELECT DISTINCT PROBLEM_OBJECTS.PROBLEM_ID FROM PROBLEM_OBJECTS
INNER JOIN PROBLEMS ON PROBLEM_OBJECTS.PROBLEM_ID =
PROBLEMS.PROBLEM_ID WHERE INTEGER(DAYS(CURRENT DATE) -
DAYS(PROBLEMS.CLOSE_DATE)) > 365 AND PROBLEMS.CLOSE_DATE IS NOT NULL

The only difference is the comparison operator ( = vs. > )

Any ideas?

I don't know the answer to your question, but I don't understand why you are
using the integer function since the days function returns the value in
integer format.

When you say "does not work." Does that mean you get an error or no data
returned.

You working on some Mars-Probe? On Earth 365 is pretty much all you get
in a year....

And don't forget that there is more than just one year...

Anyway, what is the exact error message that is returned by DB2 on the "not
working" query?
