Sorry team to bother you again, i have a code that is giving me issues

| eval InT = (strptime('LastPickupDate',"%m-%d-%Y %H:%M:%S")) + (('DaysOfARVRefil'+ 28)*86400)

| stats list(InT) by FacilityName

but the column InT is all blank, again how do i convert InT back to readable date and list them by facility names 

many thanks

Hi @ositaumeozulu,

to have the InT date you could also use reletive_time() function (https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/SCS/current/SearchReference/DateandTimeFunctions), nd anyway, you have to convert the epochtime of your calculation in Human Readable format.

something like this:

| eval InT = strftime(relative_time(strptime('LastPickupDate',"%m-%d-%Y %H:%M:%S"),"+28d"),"%m-%d-%Y %H:%M:%S")

Ciao.
