Calculating Forecast Length via Dates

Postby BCNAV » Fri Nov 10, 2017 8:47 am

Hi again

I am using:

%history_end_date="2017.09"
%forecast_start_date="2017.10"
%forecast_end_date="2019.12"

To start and label workfiles. I need to be able to get the number of months between %forecast_start_date and %forecast_end_date

I don't think datediff can work due to them being characters. Is there a way around this? Again I need number of months between them, in this case it is 27

thanks
