Contents

  1. When using User Variables, you can store the Result Value in one of the Left or Right values. (you can use it as a counter!)
  2. When calculating dates/times, here are the tips!




If you want to know how to do calculations between dates and times, go straight to the bottom of this page!


EXAMPLE

[Left Value] [+] [Right Value] = [Result Value]



  • Parameters


  • Operators

    OperatorMeaningExample
    +Add two operands or unary plusx + y +2
    -Subtract right operand from the left or unary minusx - y -2
    *Multiply two opeandsx * y
    /Divide left operand by the right one (always results into float)x / y
    %Modulus - remainder of the division of left operand by the rightx % y (remainder of x/y)
    //Floor division - division that results into whole number adjusted to the left in the number linex // y
    **Exponent - left operand raised to the power of rightx**y (x to the power y)



1. When using User Variables, you can store the Result Value in one of the Left or Right values. (you can use it as a counter!)


EXAMPLE  When you want to user {{user.variable1}} as a counter for increment of 1


Left Value     {{user.variable1}}
Operator      +
Right Value   1
Result Value {{user.variable1}}


2. When calculating dates/times, here are the tips!

  2-1. Left Value can take all the following formats.

YYYYMMDD
YYYY-MM-DD
YYYY/MM/DD
MMDDYYYY
MM-DD-YYYY
MM/DD/YYYY
B D YYYY
B D, YYYY
D B YYYY
YYYYMMDD-HHMMSS.mmm
YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM:SS.mmm
YYYY/MM/DD HH:MM:SS.mmm
MMDDYYYY-HHMMSS.mmm
MM-DD-YYYY HH:MM:SS.mmm
MM/DD/YYYY HH:MM:SS.mmm
YYYYMMDD-HHMMSS
YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM:SS
YYYY/MM/DD HH:MM:SS
MMDDYYYY-HHMMSS
MM-DD-YYYY HH:MM:SS
MM/DD/YYYY HH:MM:SS


 2-2. You can use only [+] or [-] operator.


 2-3. Right Value can take only the following “time-delta” notations. There is NO SPACE after [n].


n day
n hour
n min
n sec
n msec
n usec
n week
n month
n year

Note: [n] is an Integer.


2-4. You can use date or datetime for the Right Value only when operator is [-].

In this case, if Left Value is date, then the Right Value must be date. If the Left Value is datetime, then the Right Value must be datetime.



2-5. You can customize date or datetime with Custom date format.


YYYY|YY(Year) MM|M(Month) DD|D(Day) hh|h(Hour) mm|m(Minute) ss|s(Second)

You can combine then in various orders like shown in examples below.


EXAMPLE1

June 03, 2019

YYYY.MM.DD => 2019.06.03

YY.MM.DD => 19.06.03

M/D => 6/3

EXAMPLE2

Jun 03, 2019 13: 02: 03

M/D hhmmss=> 6/3 130203

M/D h:m=> 6/3 13:2


(warning) If you input data to ‘Custom Date Format’ field, regardless of ‘Out Date Format’, or ‘Out Date Time Format’ settings, only the custom date is applied.
