list of formulas that are allowed in PLD


i am an ABAPer & new to this SAP B1 env.

is there any document/link that gives the list of formulas (along with syntax) that are allowed in PLD ?

actually i have to print "No. of days delayed" (Run Date - Due Date) in Customer Statement letter.

i tried entering the formula as Field_167 - Field_036 but i get only 0 (zero) even though there is diff in dates.

i tried with datediff(DAY, Field_036, Field_167) and got the error : Errors were found in the formula"

what is the exact syntax to calculate elapsed number of days?

to check for a condition also, it seems, we need to have additional UDFs & establish the dependencies to get what we want, instead of having a straight forward "if" OR "case" statement.

working with SAP B1's tools (e.g. PLD) is like doing a surgery with kitchen knife! (sorry, if i have hurted anyone's feelings

if anyone can give a list of formulas (along with exact syntax) that are allowed in PLD it will be of great help to people like me.

Thanks & Regards,
