datediff variance



Hi! I would like my report to show the difference between the start date of an activity and the birthday of a participant. It seems that datediff does not work as per my studies. Say the activity starts on Jan 1 and the birth day is Jan 3, I would like the column to show, 0 (for the month), 2 (for the days). Is this possible in Caspio?

Hey there,

I believe you have a similar function like this inquiry.

Hi @roattw

I have the same workflow but I somehow found a workaround for this.


I created 3 Virtual fields, one for Year calculation, one for month, and another one for year. 

Inside the virtual fields, here are my formula.

For Year:

Datediff(mm, [@field:Birthdate], GetUTCDate())/12

For Month:

Datediff(day, [@field:Birthdate], GetUTCDate())/30 - ([@cbParamVirtual1]*12)

For Day:

Datediff(day, [@field:Birthdate], GetUTCDate()) - ([@cbParamVirtual1]*365) - ([@cbParamVirtual2]*30)


And then I concatenated them all to the field that is on my table:

CONVERT(VARCHAR, [@cbParamVirtual1]) + "YEARS " + 
CONVERT(VARCHAR, [@cbParamVirtual2]) + "MONTHS " + 
CONVERT(VARCHAR,[@cbParamVirtual3]) + "DAYS"


This was my output.



I also hid the Virtual fields using HTML Block so it won't show on the DataPage.


Hope this helps!
