Current Date BeastMode/ETL// Categorize Days to Months

I made a beastmode to substract the current date- a fixed date value which return in # of days. Now, I need to build a case to categorize the # days into months as I can't do it directly from the date configuration on the card. Do I require a magic ETL or a case can be build up on the same beast mode?

 

Thanks,

Jessica.

You could do something simple like divide the # of days by 30 to give you a month count.

There other option is to use PERIOD_DIFF() to get the # of months difference.

At least at first glance, it sounds like either option should be feasible in a BeastMode.

 

Hope that helps,
