I've a simple query that I've not been able to solve. I'm comparing day of year to day of year to find out someones birthday and it it returning me two days.
Note: the @birthday field is a "Date"
Result (today 05/14):
(Extract(DOY FROM E0.tsBirthdate) = Extract(DOY FROM (GetDate()) AT TIME ZONE 'Europe/Lisbon'))
As far as I understand the problem seems to be in the Time Zone but I can't see how to solve it...
Does any one have a suggestion on how to solve this issue?
my bad I got confused with the sql name tsBirthdate
The reason why your method doesn't work is because of leap years.
there are as many days from 01/01/1948 to 13/05/1948 as from 01/01/1942 to 14/05/1942 because of the 29th of February.
I recommand extracting the day in the month and the month and comparing it to the current day and month.
Thank you, that seems to have been exactly the problem. I didn't know the method DayOfYear translated the date to the number of days, good to keep in mind.
Thank you for the suggestion.
It is a Date not a Datetime, non the less I've already tried that
the birthdate being a datetime, did you try casting the birthdate to a date with ToDate(@birthday)?
