1.     Strings Operations

1.1           Concatenate strings

lv_ fstname
=  “Mr Sam”;

    
lv_lstname = “Buck”;

    
lv_fullname  = Lv_ fstname  + “ “ + Lv_lstname;

Result: lv_fullname will have value “Mr Sam
Buck”.

1.2           Concatenate strings with numerical variable

lv_ fstname
=  “Mr Sam”;

    
lv_lstname = “Buck”;

lv_age =
“Age”;

lv_ageno
= 35;

lv_str  =  lv_
fstname  + ” “ +  lv_lstname
+ ”,  “ +  lv_age
+  “  “  +
lv_ageno  ;

Result : lv_str will have value “Mr Sam
Buck,  Age 35”.

1.3           Concatenate with New line

lv_str = “Hello
World”.

lv_str1 = “First
Code”.

Lv_str = “Hello
World” +  “\nFirst Code”.

Result: Hello World

             First Code. 

2.     Date
operation

2.1           Difference between two dates.

lv_date1 =
#2005.12.05 00:00:00#

      lv_date2
= #2005.12.01 00:00:00#.

lv_numdays  =  LV_DATE1  –
LV_DATE2;

         Result: Lv_numdays = 4.

2.2           Get start date of the period and previous years
date

Example:

Consumption C has a start date
5/10/2011 11:00:00 (that is, May, 10th, 11 a.m.).

            CalculateTimePeriod(C,”YEARS”,1,”PREVOUS”)

returns: ([1/1/2010
12:00:00],[31/12/2010 11:59:59])

CalculateTimePeriod(C,”YEARS”,1,”FROM_TODAY”)

returns: ([5/10/2010
11:00:00],[5/10/2011 10:59:59])

2.3           To get month, day or year

FROMDATE = C.from;

Result:

j =
FROMDATE.month  ;

p =
FROMDATE.day  ;

k =
FROMDATE.year  ;

2.4        Shift the period to last year

  1. fromDate.year = fromDate.year – 1;
  2. fromDate.hour = 12;
  3. fromDate.minute = 00;
  4. fromDate.second = 00;
  5. toDate.year = toDate.year – 1;
  6. toDate.hour = 11;
  7. toDate.minute = 59;
  8. toDate.second = 59;
