Vantage calculates the interval difference between two DATE, TIME or TIMESTAMP values according to the ANSI SQL standard. Units smaller than the unit of the result are ignored when calculating the interval value.

For example, when computing the difference in months for two DATE values, the day values in each of the two operands are ignored. Similarly when computing the difference in hours for two TIMESTAMP values, the minutes and the seconds values of the operands are ignored.
