Posted on 2002-04-26

Hello,

I need to be able to calculate vaction time in hours and quarter hours - holidays - weekends  and taking in to account a maxium total of 8 hours per day with my result rounded to the nearest quarter hour

So an entry of StartDate 04/26/2002 Starttime 08:00
EndDate   04/29/2002 Endtime 12:30

Would result in 12.5 hours.

I am currently calling holidays like this
'Get the list of Holidays
Set hookview = db.GetView("Holidays")
Set hookdoc = hookview.GetDocumentByKey("Holidays",True)

Here is a prototype for you,

sTime := [8:00 AM];
eTime := [5:00 PM];
StartDate := [04/26/2002 08:00:00];
EndDate := [04/30/2002 12:30:00];
@if( StartDate > EndDate; @Return(0); "" );

diffDays := @integer((EndDate - StartDate) / 86400) + 1;
strtDay := @Modulo(@Weekday(StartDate); 7);
endDay := @Modulo(@Weekday(EndDate); 7);
days := (diffDays - endDay + strtDay - 8) * 5 / 7 - @Max(-2; -strtDay) - @Min(1; endDay) + 5 - strtDay + endDay;
sTimeD := @Time(eTime) - @time(StartDate);
eTimeD := @Time(EndDate) - @time(sTime);
sTimeDiff := @if( sTimeD < 0; 0; sTimeD)/3600;
eTimeDiff := @if( eTimeD < 0; 0; eTimeD/3600);

total :=  (days-1) * 8 + eTimeDiff ;

@Prompt([OK]; "Total vacation hours" ;  @Text(total) )

Nice Hemanth,

I would do this using LotusScript.

kplew,
Are the holidays registered in the Domino Directory ? (I'm supposing you're using R5).

If so, I can write a script to do the calculations for you. If not, you need to keep the holidays somewhere else and get them from there. Let me know how and where you keep the holidays for your company and I will write the script for you.
