Has anyone else had issues with the DOWK function returning the wrong day of the week?

Is it a known issue?

DOWK works just fine for us. Use it all the time.

What makes you think it is incorrect?

Today (2014/05/21) is Wednesday:

TABLE FILE CAR
SUM
SALES 
COMPUTE TODAY/I8YYMD = &YYMD;
COMPUTE TODAY_DOWK/A4 = DOWK(TODAY, 'A4');
COMPUTE TODAY_DOWKL/A12 = DOWKL(TODAY, 'A12');

Are you by chance using I6YMD dates?

You may need to tweak your DEFCENT and YRTHRESH values to make sure you are looking at the correct century.

SET YRTHRESH = 00
TABLE FILE CAR
SUM
SALES 
COMPUTE TODAY/I6YMD = &YMD;
COMPUTE TODAY_DOWK/A4 = DOWK(TODAY, 'A4');
COMPUTE TODAY_DOWKL/A12 = DOWKL(TODAY, 'A12');
BY COUNTRY
WHERE RECORDLIMIT EQ 1
END

SET DEFCENT = 20

TABLE FILE CAR
SUM
SALES 
COMPUTE TODAY/I6YMD = &YMD;
COMPUTE TODAY_DOWK/A4 = DOWK(TODAY, 'A4');
COMPUTE TODAY_DOWKL/A12 = DOWKL(TODAY, 'A12');
BY COUNTRY
WHERE RECORDLIMIT EQ 1
END  




Cheers
