This function will be deprecated in a future release, so use it with caution.

However, it is still supported for existing expressions, so it has not been removed from the application. Editing an expression using this function can cause an error message to appear.

Instead of this function, use AddYears, AddQuartersAddMonths, AddWeeks, AddDaysAddHours, AddMinutes, or AddSeconds.

Returns a local date and/or time obtained by adding the value of the interval parameter to the starting date and/or time. This function takes into account the units (defined by the datePart parameter) for the interval.

Parameter Description

The interval type. Must be surrounded by quotes (" "). The following interval types are supported:






interval A numeric value that is a type of the part specified in the datePart parameter.
startingDateTime The starting date and time.

Return Value

DateTime value.

If the application has to display the return value, it implicitly converts it to text, thereby allowing the display format to change depending on your culture code. See Available Languages and Cultures for a list of the culture codes used by Neurons for ITSM.



The example above shows how to retrieve incidents from the past 90 days in conjunction with the CurrentDateTime() function.
