Hello -
We have a table that looks as follows:
fiscalweekstartdate fiscalweekenddate       fiscalweeknumber fiscalmonthnumber      fiscalyearnumber
2007-06-30 00:00:00      2007-07-06 23:59:00      1      1      2008
2007-07-07 00:00:00      2007-07-13 23:59:00      2      1      2008
2007-07-14 00:00:00      2007-07-20 23:59:00      3      1      2008
2007-07-21 00:00:00      2007-07-27 23:59:00      4      1      2008

Our fiscal year starts in July, and ends in June.   I would like to update the table by insertings values for each fiscal week based on the week start and end dates. Each new fiscal week is a new number. Each fiscal year has 52 or 53 fiscal weeks, and then starts over with a new fiscal year as indicated by the fiscal year on the right. I need to know how to insert these fiscal week # values for the whole table. Thanks!

I already read that. What I need now is a way to fill in the fiscalweek numbers in the table based on data like above.

Are your fiscalweekstartdate & fiscalweekenddate dates already populated?  ie, are you going to be updating rows or inserting them?

the fiscalweekstartdate and enddates are already populated. From those I would derive the fiscal week number (e.g. 1 - 52) and start over in a new year (e.g. 2009). the table pretty much has everyting I need except the fiscal week number.

try this...this will loop through them and update them accordingly.
declare @fiscalweek int, @startdate datetime
set @fiscalweek = 1
 
DECLARE  CursorTemplate CURSOR 
FAST_FORWARD FOR 	
	SELECT fiscalweekstartdate FROM yourtablename
	where fiscalweekstartdate >= '2007-06-30 00:00:00'
 
OPEN CursorTemplate
 
FETCH NEXT FROM CursorTemplate 
INTO	@startdate
 
WHILE (@@FETCH_STATUS = 0)
BEGIN
 
	update yourtablename
	set fiscalweeknumber = @fiscalweek
	where fiscalweekstartdate = @startdate
 
	set @fiscalweek = @fiscalweek + 1
 
 
	FETCH NEXT FROM CursorTemplate 
	INTO	@startdate
 
END
 
CLOSE CursorTemplate
DEALLOCATE CursorTemplate

Hello ChapManDew:

This loops through and adds one for each fiscal week, but keeps going w/out resetting when a new fiscal year starts:
This was done when I put the date as the start of the table (1989-07-01 00:00:00).

fiscalweekstartdate fiscalweekenddate      fiscalweeknumberfiscalmonthnumber      fiscalyearnumber
2007-06-30 00:00:00      2007-07-06 23:59:00      19      1      2008
2007-07-07 00:00:00      2007-07-13 23:59:00      377      1      2008
2007-07-14 00:00:00      2007-07-20 23:59:00      735      1      2008
2007-07-21 00:00:00      2007-07-27 23:59:00      1093      1      2008
2007-07-28 00:00:00      2007-08-03 23:59:00      50      2      2008
2007-08-04 00:00:00      2007-08-10 23:59:00      408      2      2008

S/B fiscal week 1,2,3,4,5,6 etc. until June 28, 2008 where a new fiscal year starts and fiscal week becomes 1 again.

Can you do that? Thanks -

Will the date be the same every year (with a new  year number)?

not necessarily. The last day of the fiscal week is always Friday, so Sat. starts the new fiscal week, and the new year. This year is Jun 28. But all of the dates are already in the table by start and end date for each week. All I need to do is put in the fiscal week #, and start over each new fiscal year (which is also in the table, e.g. 2008, 2009, 2010). So 6/21/08-6/27/08 is fiscal week # 52 in 2008, and 6/28/08 - 7/4/08 is fiscal week # 1 for 2009:


fiscalweekstartdatefiscalweekenddate      fiscalweeknumberfiscalmonthnumber      fiscalyearnumber
2008-06-21 00:00:00      2008-06-27 23:59:00      1544      12      2008
2008-06-28 00:00:00      2008-07-04 23:59:00      20      1      2009
2008-07-05 00:00:00      2008-07-11 23:59:00      378      1      2009

Hmm...in that case use this code instead.  You'll need to plug in the dates for each year and run them one at a time for each year, but it should be easy enough:


declare @fiscalweek int, @startdate datetime
set @fiscalweek = 1
 
DECLARE  CursorTemplate CURSOR 
FAST_FORWARD FOR 	
 
	SELECT fiscalweekstartdate FROM yourtablename
	where 
		fiscalweekstartdate >= '2007-06-30 00:00:00' and 
		fiscalweekstartdate <= '2008-06-30 00:00:00'
	order by fiscalweekstartdate asc
  
FETCH NEXT FROM CursorTemplate 
INTO	@startdate
 
WHILE (@@FETCH_STATUS = 0)
BEGIN
 
	update yourtablename
	set fiscalweeknumber = @fiscalweek
	where fiscalweekstartdate = @startdate
 
	set @fiscalweek = @fiscalweek + 1
 
	FETCH NEXT FROM CursorTemplate 
	INTO	@startdate
 
END
 
CLOSE CursorTemplate
DEALLOCATE CursorTemplate

I just had to add OPEN CursorTemplate and the code works great. I was thinking this would need to be entered one year at a time - but well worth it to find a solution.

Great solution!!  One of the best I have had yet.
