Calculate week number offset against a date.

Hi,

I currently use the following formula to calculate the current week number:

Datum:= @If(@IsTime(Date); Date; @Now);
y:=@Year(Datum);
jan1:=@Date(y;1;1);
day1:= @Adjust(jan1; 0; 0; 3-@Modulo(@Weekday(jan1)+1; 7); 0; 0; 0);
jan1l:=@Date(y-1;1;1);
day1l:=@Adjust(jan1l; 0; 0; 3-@Modulo(@Weekday(jan1l)+1; 7); 0; 0; 0);
jan1n:=@Date(y+1;1;1);
day1n:=@Adjust(jan1n; 0; 0; 3-@Modulo(@Weekday(jan1n)+1; 7); 0; 0; 0);
offset:=@If(Datum<day1; day1l; Datum<day1n; day1; day1n);
@Integer((Datum-offset)/86400/7)+1

What I would like to do is calculate the week number from the first Saturday after the 6th April of each year.

So for example if the first Saturday in April is the 7th then this would be week 1
if the first Saturday is the 5th then this would be week 53

Is there any way the above formula can be modified to achieve this?

Sure, but I am not a formula expert.

I would think that all you need to do is change the beginning date to work from April 6 instead of Jan 1.

I hope this helps !

So first would be to calculate the first Sat after April 6, and then plug it in whenever Jan1 is used.

SOmeone here can figure it out.

You might try to set jan1 (which is used as reference date) to your preferred reference date, but there are some weird snags in the standard weeknumber computation. No, won't work. If someone hasn't solved this puzzle by tomorrow, I'll certainly give it a try...

Some info missing: a week starts on what day: Sat/Sun/Mon?

Try with this code, it assumes Monday as the first day of the week:

Datum:= @If(@IsTime(Date); Date; @Now);
y:=@Year(Datum);
jan1:=@Date(y;4;6);
day1:= @Adjust(jan1; 0; 0; 5-@Modulo(@Weekday(jan1)+1; 7); 0; 0; 0);
jan1l:=@Date(y-1;4;6);
day1l:=@Adjust(jan1l; 0; 0; 5-@Modulo(@Weekday(jan1l)+1; 7); 0; 0; 0);
jan1n:=@Date(y+1;4;6);
day1n:=@Adjust(jan1n; 0; 0; 5-@Modulo(@Weekday(jan1n)+1; 7); 0; 0; 0);
offset:=@If(Datum<day1; day1l; Datum<day1n; day1; day1n);
@Integer((Datum-offset)/86400/7)+1

Not tested, just applied logic...

Striking resemblance... but I've never seen it before, honestly.

Great minds think alike! :)  I didn't notice the resemblance, to tell the truth.
