Equivalent “Next_Day” Oracle’s functionality in OBIEE



There is equivalent functionality in OBIEE, for Next_Day function in Oracle. 

          There is a question too in Oracle forums by me. And, excellent answer by mma1709 (Sorry to say this, as i don’t know his name and that is what there in forums too)

Here it’s…

TIMESTAMPADD(SQL_TSI_DAY, ( 7 – dayofweek(Time.ActualDate) + X ), Time.ActualDate) 


X = 1 will be sunday. If you want tuesday it will be 3. In that way, X will be replaced by the number depends on the next dayname you want.

  2. Hi Kishore,

    I have read your posts on Oracle Forum. Great work!
    But in this case, why not just TIMESTAMPADD(SQL_TSI_DAY, 1, Time.ActualDate)?

    • Refer next_day function exactly on what it does.. It will just not retrieve next day. For given parameter of day it will give the next date. Read more about Next_day function in oracle
