[CLOSED] Previous Working Day

Hello,

My previous working day suddenly stopped working.
I am using the following syntax over a month.
-SET &PRIBUSDAY = DATEMOV(&YYMD, 'PWD');
it is setting to 20070908 instead of 20070910.

Thanks,
SG.

I've been led to believe that Date functions will only work with Date fields, in Dialogue Manager &YYMD is an alphanumeric value, not a Date field. You can use Date functions in Dialogue Manager if you convert the date to a Date field before applying the function.

-SET &PRIBUSDAY =
-  DATECVT((DATEMOV((DATECVT(&YYMD,'I8YYMD','YYMD')),'PWD')),'YYMD','I8YYMD');
-TYPE &PRIBUSDAY


The inner DATECVT function converts &YMMD to a Date field, then DATEMOV is applied, then the outer DATECVT converts the result back to an alphanumeric field.

Ridiculous, non?

Hi guys,

We have a problem with Previos Work Day calculation. I am using Francis's example to convert the text to date then doing DATEMOV etc.

This works fine, however someone has noticed that the previous working day calulcation for 1st Feb 2009 is Thursday 29th Jan and not Friday 30th Jan?


-SET &PRIBUSDAY = DATECVT((DATEMOV((DATECVT('20090201','I8YYMD','YYMD')),'PWD')),'YYMD','I8YYMD');
-TYPE &PRIBUSDAY
-EXIT


Any ideas? Is this a holiday in the States?

Thanks

Mark

There seems to be a consistent bug, when the argument date is not a weekday:

DATECVT(date,'PWD'), for a Saturday or Sunday date, returns the prior Thursday.

-REPEAT :DATES: FOR &Z FROM 0 TO 27;
-SET &Z1 = 20090201+&Z;
-SET &Z2 = DATECVT(&Z1,'I8YYMD','YYMD');
-SET &Z3 = DATEMOV(&Z2,'PWD');
-SET &Z4 = DATECVT(&Z3,'YYMD','I8YYMD');
-SET &ZW1=DOWK(&Z1,'A3');
-SET &ZW4=DOWK(&Z4,'A3');
-TYPE * &ZW1 &Z1 : &Z2 : &Z3 : &ZW4 &Z4 *
-:DATES:

 * SAT 20090228 : 39506 : 39504 : THU 20090226 *

And similarly, 'NBD' returns the following Tuesday for a weekend argument date.

-- Apparently the DATECVT function first adjusts a non-business-day argument date in the indicated direction to a business day, and then continues to the adjusted argument date's prior or next business day.

And the work around is:

-SET &WKDAY=DOWK(20090201,'A3');
-SET &ADDDAYS=IF '&WKDAY.EVAL' EQ 'SAT' OR 'SUN' THEN 1 ELSE 0;
-SET &PRIBUSDAY =  DATECVT((DATEMOV((DATECVT('20090201','I8YYMD','YYMD')),'PWD')),'YYMD','I8YYMD');
-SET &ADJBUSDAY = AYMD(&PRIBUSDAY,&ADDDAYS,'I8YYMD');
-TYPE &PRIBUSDAY &ADJBUSDAY

Let's just say it's disappointing that the functions were not properly QA'd.

Note that Patricia's work-around will fail if and when IBI fixes DATEMOV. Here's a safer workaround.
-* To compute &OUT = the weekday following &IN (both as simple +yyyymmdd integer values):
-SET &OUT1   = DATECVT( DATEMOV( DATECVT(&IN  ,'I8YYMD','YYMD') ,'NWD') ,'YYMD','I8YYMD');
-SET &OUT2   = DATECVT( DATEMOV( DATECVT(&OUT1,'I8YYMD','YYMD') ,'PWD') ,'YYMD','I8YYMD');
-SET &OUT    = IF (&OUT2 GT &IN) THEN &OUT2 ELSE &OUT1;

-* To compute &OUT = the weekday preceeding &IN:
-SET &OUT1   = DATECVT( DATEMOV( DATECVT(&IN  ,'I8YYMD','YYMD') ,'PWD') ,'YYMD','I8YYMD');
-SET &OUT2   = DATECVT( DATEMOV( DATECVT(&OUT1,'I8YYMD','YYMD') ,'NWD') ,'YYMD','I8YYMD');
-SET &OUT    = IF (&OUT2 LT &IN) THEN &OUT2 ELSE &OUT1;

&OUT1 is the weekday date returned by DATEMOV, and &OUT2 is its neighbor back in the direction of the original date. We test whether &OUT2 looks right (where it lies in relation to the input date):
- If &OUT2 looks wrong, &OUT1 is the correct result;
- If &OUT2 looks right, &OUT1 must have overshot the goal, and &OUT2 is the correct result.

Yes, it's why I write some of my own functions as -INCLUDES at least then I know how they will operate.

And here we thought we were the only ones having problems. Here's our solution which also includes holidays since we were unable to get that to work either.

-SET &EDATE         = IF &TOD GT 17.00.00 THEN AYMD(&YYMD, 1, 'I8YYMD') ELSE &YYMD;
DDATE/YYMD = &EDATE;
T1/MDYY=DDATE;
T3/I2=IF '&W1' EQ 'MON' THEN 3 ELSE 1;
T4/MDYY=T1-T3;
T5/I8YYMD=T4;
T6/I8=T5;
-*
-*Looks at previous day to determine if that day was a holiday
-*If so, force it to look at the most recent work day
-*
TDATEI/I8 = DECODE T6(20060102 20051230

Focus Community, You are not dead, yet
"Don't you think it's ridiculous"
"Nice to think out of the box"
How nice to read, Real thanks.
Cordially and Focusely.
PS : When I learnt (and never mastered) APL, someone told me that you had turned into a langage when you came to feel as Natural, dirty tricks to reach your goal.
I have some "Focuseries" that I particularly cherish
Last : Come to think to the enormous amount of money that went around Year 2K. "Wasn't it ridiculous" or worse ?
