Current_timestamp minus days

02 April,2014 by Tom Collins

Question:Do you know how to write a query in DB2 that would display records based on the last month eg. Take todays date and then  display last 31 days ?  In other words, I need to subtract some days from a timestamp

Answer: Without  actual details I can’t supply a specific query, but I can share with you a pattern, allowing you to apply in your query.

The basic concept:


This example query will return the date from 31 days ago


db2 "select date(current timestamp – 31 days) from sysibm.sysdummy1"


How you  construct the statement  will depend on the column used to store the dates
