SQL Reporting Services 2005
Im currently putting together a report where it is necessary to compare the dates between two columns and put the difference in a third column in the layout screen.
Im aware that DateDiff will compare dates but I cant find any examples where DateDiff compares dates between two different columns within a table.
I assume this is possible??
Any help will be grately appreciated.

Re: SQL Reporting Services 2005
If I get this right you just need a SQL statement like so:
select dtinsertdate, cast(getdate()- dtinsertdate as decimal(10,0)) as dtDate
This piece of code just selects the field dtinsertdate and then another field which I have calculated to subtract today's date and the dtinsertdate. The cast function converts it to a number instead of a date.
Similarly if it is just a matter of subtracting two field names it would take this form:
select cast((dtDate1- dtDate2) as decimal(10,0)) as dtDate
