Rails – What to do check your date searches are not showing the results you expect.
Some dates will need to be stored in a date time format. This does not pose a problem when you are searching for dates equal to or greater than a specific date. You also avoid problems if you are storing dates in a date format.
However, if you search for a date less than or equal to a specific date using a datetime column, your results do not include that date. In other words, if you set up a search to show you everything where the date in question was less than or equal to 3/25/2016 you would not get any records where the date was 3/25/2016.
# ————————– Begin created at dates —————————- # Only one date is filled in: documents = documents.where(“documents.
created_at >= ?”, from_date) if from_date.present? and not to_date.present? documents = documents.where(“cast (documents.created_at as date) <= ?”, to_date) if to_date.present? and not from_date.present?
# cast ([created_at] as date) <= ‘2016-03-25’
# Both Dates are filled in documents = documents.where(“documents.
created_at >= ?”, from_date,) if from_date.present? and to_date.present? documents = documents.where(“cast (documents.created_at as date) <= ?”, to_date) if to_date.present? and from_date.present?
The cast (documents.created_at as date) will compare the dates as dates and ignore the time.
