Is there a dataprocessor or function to add months to a given date.
Something like for ex : dateadd function in SQL.
ex 1: for todays date(24-Aug-2020), i would like to add 4 months then it would be 24-Dec-2020
ex2: for todays date(24-Aug-2020), i would like to add - 4 months then it would be 24-Apr-2020.
I know a way that if we use SQL recipe, we can define database functions to get the result,but i am looking some processor or function in datailku
It is not intuitive how to do this, if you know SQL.
However, you can use a formula step in a visual prepare recipe to make these changes.
You are looking for the inc (increment function) in the Formula.
inc(LastUpdated, 4, "month")
Will add 4 months to a date in LastUpdated column if that column has been parsed to a DSS standard format with the date parse command.
Hope this works for you.
You can find the documentation on the date formula functions here
