APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When formatting a report in Report Studio you may use 'Time
    Interval' format to display a difference between two
    timestamps.??This data format contains two unused properties:?-
    Display Months?- Display Years??Both months and years can not be
    calculated and thus both properties suppose to be removed. For
    example time interval 31 days can mean one month (January) or
    one month and 3 days (February).
    

Local fix

  • Use _ymdint_between() Cognos function to calculate interval as a
     number of years, months and days.
