LastFullWeek from Last year

I'm running a report which compares results from last week using the LastFullWeek function. However, i would like to compare the same week in last year. I have tried LastFullWeek-52 but without any luck.

***CURRENTLY***
If {SaleDate} = LastFullWeek
THEN {Transactions}

***I WOULD LIKE***
If {SaleDate} = LastFullWeek (IN THIS TIME LAST YEAR)
THEN {Transactions}


Any help is appreciated :)

You can find the same week by

Dateadd ("W",-52,{SaleDate})

You can then use that in your if statement.

good luck

What does {SaleDate} look like.  It needs to be a DateTime.  If it is a string you can use CDate(SaleDate) to convert to a date.

Other options are
DateTime (YYYY,MMM,DD)
Date (YYYY,MMM,DD)

Look through the Date and Type Conversion functions in the formula editor.  Use the HELP to determine what each requires and expects.  You should be able to find a way to convert  to a datetime.
