The schema is SYSIBM.

datetime-expression
An expression that specifies a date after which the first day of the next month is to be returned. The expression must return a value that is a DATE, TIMESTAMP WITHOUT TIME ZONE, CHAR, VARCHAR, GRAPHIC, or VARGRAPHIC data type. CHAR, VARCHAR, GRAPHIC, and VARGRAPHIC are supported using implicit casting. If datetime-expression is a CHAR, VARCHAR, GRAPHIC, or VARGRAPHIC data type, it must be a valid string accepted by the TIMESTAMP scalar function and does not contain a time zone.

The result of the function is DATE. If the argument can be null, the result can be null. If the argument is null, the result is the null value.

Examples

  • The following example returns the date value of the first day of the next month after the date specified by the input:
    values next_month('2007-02-18')
          Result: 2007-03-01
