All I want to do is, within a loop, move from a day to the prior weekday, execute some code, move to the prior weekday, execute some code etc. Moving to the prior weekday seems to fail when around month boundaries. I cannot for the life of me determine why this is not working. Please note the following:
20101031 is a Sunday so moving to the PWD should give 20101029, a Friday, but it produces a result of 20101028, a Thursday. If I change &NEWDATE to 20101030, a Saturday, I get a result of 20101028.
If I change &NEWDATA to 20101101 then the code works properly. It seems that if the date I'm trying to convert/move falls on a weekend then the code fails. Do you think I'm gonna have to code something that looks at the day of the week and then move one day at a time and lok at the day again etc. I'm stumped.
I tried your suggestion and it does indeed work when the date I am moving from is a weekend day but fails when the day is a weekday. I suspect I'm going to have to do some very specific checking on the day of the week and branch off accordingly.
Looks to me like there is a bug when using the 'PWD' parameter with DATEMOV. Here's a work-around that seems to work. Subtract one day from the start date and then use DATEMOV with the 'WD-' parameter. This will move to the previous workday if the current date is a weekend, but leave the date where it is if it's a weekday.
