Hi,

I wrote a calculated column formula to extract the Date only from the Date/time column.  I used the INT() function to do so.

Hope this helps.

Hi,

That is not a patch.  You had created a relationship from a Date/Time column to a Date column - that is obviously not possible.  You can create a relatioship only between a Date and another Date column.  The INT() function extract only the Date portion of the Date/Time stamp.  Once that is done, one creates a relationship from the result of the INT() column to the Date column in the Calendar Table.

Hope this clarifies.
