"We need a report showing transactions in january, and we need the report done by Jan 15"
Our database isn't refreshed from production until the 16th of the month.
"But I need it by the 15th"
Our database isn't refreshed from production until the 16th of the month.
"So what do I do?"
Well, next year, I would suggest you don't wait until the 14th to make this kind of request. You do this report EVERY year, so you are well aware of when you need the report by.
"So I can't get the report?"
The report will be available on the 20th.
"But I need it by the 15th"
*facepalm*
I will have it done on the 20th.

5 minutes later.... Director shows up at my desk.
"So she needs this report by the 15th"
Our database isn't refreshed from production until the 16th of the month.
"But she needs it by the 15th."
As I told her last year, and 5 minutes ago, she knows she needs this report EACH year, by the SAME date. And yet, she doesn't make the request until the 14th of the month. If she would request the query ahead of time, we could make arrangements to get it done on time.
"So what can we do now?"
Our database isn't refreshed from production until the 16th of the month.
"But she needs it by the 15th."
*facepalm*
It will be done on the 20th.
