now() formula in prepare recipe not translatable on SQL engine

Hi

I am using Redshift dataset in my flow and when I use prepare recipe and add another column for current_date

using now() formula function and select SQL engine as my RUN option, Its says formula not translatable hence

not allowing me to use the underlying SQL engine. Any workaround this would be highly appreciated !

 

Thanks

Rajesh

Hi Rajesh,
In the formula processor, you can write the SQL translation to be used when you use the SQL engine. 
So you can check in redshift what is the function to get the date of today and write it here.

Hi, 

No, you should upgrade.
