Difference Between 0CREATED_ON and Today's date

Hi Experts,

I am new to BW and I have to accomplish the following requirement.

We have a characteristic 0CREATED_ON and when the report is run we need to calculate the difference between today's date and 0CREATED_ON. Can you please advice on the best possible way to achieve the same. If it could be broken into the logical steps, it would be a great help!!

Thanks for the help in advance.

Regards

PG

    Hi Piyush,

    When you create the query make sure that characteristic Created on is in rows . Select all other characteristics and keyfigures in your query as per your requirement. Now

    Step 1. Create a formula variable by replacement path on Created_on lets say FVCRON .

    Step2. Activate the business content variable "Formula Variable for Current Calendar Day - 0F_ADAY " . If it is already active you should be able to see in your formula variable list.

    Step3. create a Calculated Keyfigure 0F_ADAY - FVCRON .

    If you need individual steps on how to create formula variable or to activate business content variable or how to create a variable using customer exit let me know.

    Vijay .
