A timestamp or date to subtract from. base must match the type of unit.

offset

The number of units to subtract from base.

unit

  • day, or days

  • half day, or half days

  • hour, or hours

  • minute, or minutes

  • second, or seconds

  • millisecond, or milliseconds

  • microsecond, or microseconds

  • nanosecond, or nanoseconds
