Insert Excel Formula Function Analysis 2.2

Morning Experts.

I hope someone can resolve a issue i am facing.

Basically i have two dates "Document Date" and "Due Date"

I want to see the different in days between the dates.

I inserted a column using the "New Cells"function and inserted the excel function =DatedIF(Cell,Cell,"D") function which works perfectly fine in excel 2016, but when i use it as part of the BO workbook it comes up with NA

Am i doing something wrong?

Thanks in advance

Rob

    In 2.3 it returns numbers for me. I don't think this is what you want. See below:

    It maybe something to add to Idea Place? SAP BusinessObjects Analysis edition for MS Office: Home - I don't see an existing suggestion out there. If you submit an idea, link back here and I will vote for it.

    Hi Robbert,

    I tested in 2.2 as well... it fails even with the simplest formula e.g. =D2-C2

    For half a second it displays the correct difference, e.g. 5,00 (days), but then it switches to NA.

    I have no idea why AO does that, either 😔

    I just guess that the problem is the leading ' e.g. '08/30/2016

    Even the Excel Standard filter is not able to group dates like this into e.g.

    2016

    July

    01... to 31 etc.

    This is quite an old bug, and I think still valid, since the idea is open until today:
