Is it possible to view the year and/or month from a date field using Cognos 8?
Use the the extract function to obtain the portion of the date required.
The extract function is found under the Common Functions folder in the Expression Editor of Report Studio. The syntax is:
where datepart is the date portion you wish to view (one of day, month year, minute, hour, second), and datetime_exp is the date query item for which you wish to display a datepart.
