Hello Smile

I'm having a little problem with trying to get a sort of search bar for my report. It's just the one column I want to search (Date) which is a timestamp.
So I've tried adding
TO_CHAR(DATE,'DD-MON-YY') = :P1_DATE
To the where clause, but that doesn't seem to work...
Is there a way to just search the date of a timestamp?

thanks

What is the name of the report field you are trying to search?
For P1_Date, what type of page item is this? Is it a date picker or a textbox?

Is the where clause in your report SQL statement? Maybe you can post the sql query you are using for the report?

Well, it's a little complicated, but the source for my report is:
DECLARE
  v_query varchar2(10000);
BEGIN
  IF :P1_QUERY is not null THEN
    v_query := 'select 
  pm.MILESTONE_ID " ",
  TO_DATE(TO_CHAR(pm.MILESTONE_TIME,''DD-MON-YYYY HH24:MI''),''DD-MON-YYYY HH24:MI'') "Date",
  TO_CHAR(pm.MILESTONE_TIME,''HH24:MI'') "Time",
  ''http://ppmc.ch-gva01.serono.com/itg/web/knta/crt/''||P.PPMC_PROJECT_CODE "PPMC Link",
   p.PROJECT_NAME "Project Name",
   p.PL_MUID "Project Leader",
   p.IM_MUID "Information Manager",
  cp.CHECKPOINT_CODE "CP"' ||:P1_QUERY||',
  case when (select count(*)  
    from PMO_MILESTONE_REVIEW pmr  
    where pmr.MILESTONE_ID = pm.MILESTONE_ID
    and pmr.IS_APPROVED = 1) = :P1_COUNT THEN
    ''<font color="green">APPROVED</font>''
    ELSE
    ''<font color="red">REJECTED</font>''
    end "Overall"
from PMO_MILESTONES pm,
     PMO_CHECKPOINT cp,
     PMO_PROJECT P
where pm.PROJECT_ID = p.project_id
and cp.checkpoint_ID = pm.checkpoint_ID
order by pm.milestone_time';
  ELSE
  v_query := 'SELECT 1 FROM dual WHERE 1=0';
  END IF;
  return(v_query);
END;

Then the item P1_QUERY is a query which returns:
,

 decode((select pmr.IS_APPROVED
       from PMO_MILESTONE_REVIEW pmr
       where pmr.MILESTONE_ID = pm.MILESTONE_ID
       and pmr.ROLE_ID = 1),
 1, '<font color="green">Y</font>',
 0, '<font color="red">N</font>',
 '<font color="orange">?</font>') "Ver",

 decode((select pmr.IS_APPROVED
       from PMO_MILESTONE_REVIEW pmr
       where pmr.MILESTONE_ID = pm.MILESTONE_ID
       and pmr.ROLE_ID = 2),
 1, '<font color="green">Y</font>',
 0, '<font color="red">N</font>',
 '<font color="orange">?</font>') "SnR",

 decode((select pmr.IS_APPROVED
       from PMO_MILESTONE_REVIEW pmr
       where pmr.MILESTONE_ID = pm.MILESTONE_ID
       and pmr.ROLE_ID = 3),
 1, '<font color="green">Y</font>',
 0, '<font color="red">N</font>',
 '<font color="orange">?</font>') "Som",

 decode((select pmr.IS_APPROVED
       from PMO_MILESTONE_REVIEW pmr
       where pmr.MILESTONE_ID = pm.MILESTONE_ID
       and pmr.ROLE_ID = 4),
 1, '<font color="green">Y</font>',
 0, '<font color="red">N</font>',
 '<font color="orange">?</font>') "ITA",

 decode((select pmr.IS_APPROVED
       from PMO_MILESTONE_REVIEW pmr
       where pmr.MILESTONE_ID = pm.MILESTONE_ID
       and pmr.ROLE_ID = 5),
 1, '<font color="green">Y</font>',
 0, '<font color="red">N</font>',
 '<font color="orange">?</font>') "ITF",

 decode((select pmr.IS_APPROVED
       from PMO_MILESTONE_REVIEW pmr
       where pmr.MILESTONE_ID = pm.MILESTONE_ID
       and pmr.ROLE_ID = 6),
 1, '<font color="green">Y</font>',
 0, '<font color="red">N</font>',
 '<font color="orange">?</font>') "PMO"


Then I added:
and TO_CHAR(pm.MILESTONE_TIME,''DD-MON-YY'') = :P1_DATE
after
and cp.checkpoint_ID = pm.checkpoint_ID


The item :P1_DATE is a Datepicker with format DD-MON-YY (which isn't the format of the date in the timestamp, I checked the database, which is why I put the TO_CHAR)

thanks

What datatype is your pm.milestone time? If it's a date then no, it doesn't have that format. It will always have a time portion. DD-MON-YY is just the way oracle chooses to display it to you unless you supply a format to see the column value. (It's in your settings)

The trunc function is what you're looking for. Apply it to the date field in your table, and the time portion will not be considered. Then you can compare it to a to_date of :P1_DATE with your format.

The answer to your question depends on this. I hope it's a date rather than a varchar2.Please give us the create table statement for pmo_milestones.

It's a timestamp

The create table statement is:
CREATE TABLE "ITPMO"."PMO_MILESTONES"
  (
    "MILESTONE_ID"        NUMBER NOT NULL ENABLE,
    "CHECKPOINT_ID"       NUMBER NOT NULL ENABLE,
    "PROJECT_ID"          NUMBER NOT NULL ENABLE,
    "MILESTONE_STATUS_ID" NUMBER NOT NULL ENABLE,
    "MILESTONE_TIME" TIMESTAMP (0),
    CONSTRAINT "PMO_MILESTONES_PK" PRIMARY KEY ("MILESTONE_ID") USING INDEX PCTFREE 10 INITRANS 2 MAXTRANS 255 COMPUTE STATISTICS STORAGE(INITIAL 65536 NEXT 1048576 MINEXTENTS 1 MAXEXTENTS 2147483645 PCTINCREASE 0 FREELISTS 1 FREELIST GROUPS 1 BUFFER_POOL DEFAULT FLASH_CACHE DEFAULT CELL_FLASH_CACHE DEFAULT) TABLESPACE "USERS" ENABLE,

  TABLESPACE "USERS" ;

And I looked at the TRUNC function, I'm not entirely sure what to put where,

I tried:
and TRUNC(TO_DATE(pm.MILESTONE_TIME,''DD-MON-YY'')) = :P1_DATE
and
and (SELECT TRUNC(TO_DATE(pm.MILESTONE_TIME,''DD-MON-YY''))) = TO_DATE(:P1_DATE, ''DD-MON-YY'')

Ok I got it:
and TRUNC(pm.MIlESTONE_TIME) = :P1_DATE


Thanks Smile

And a tip to you right away. Never use to_date on a date/timestamp! to_date is used to convert a string to a date.
