Re: using report date in the program rule


Hi Nada,

Best wishes for 2018 !

Regarding your query I assume the problem you are facing with is how to
obtain the year from the event date. Considering the date format you can
get the string value of the year by obtaining the first 4 digits from the
left side of the value for the event date. So I suggest you use the
following function.

d2:left(V{event_date}, 4)

Hope this helps.
