How can I adjust this formula so that my end result is Group by week with the week ending day of Saturday? Currently is being displayed and grouped by the week beginning day of Sunday.

{BAQReportResult.LaborDtl.PayrollDate} +
(7 - DayofWeek({BAQReportResult.LaborDtl.PayrollDate},crSunday))

Thanks in advance for the help! I apologize if the answer I need is within my other question but I haven't quite got a grasp on date formulas to fully understand how to piece them together..

My zones aren't displaying correctly on my webpage and it's making it impossible to select the correct one.. The primary zone for this should be Crystal Reports.

Create a second formula that converts your formulas result to the previous saturday

i.e.

{@YourFormula} - (DayOfWeek({@YourFormula}, crSaturday) - 1)

AH yes! That does the trick.. Now, is there a way for me to be sure the months are grouped correctly? Perhaps I should ask this as a different question and relate to this thread?

For instance, week ending 4/2 is being grouped in April instead of March.. I would like to group the week into which month the first 3 days fall into. In other words, 4/2, Saturday falls in April but Monday through Wednesday falls in March. Therefore I would like this week to be grouped with March. Basically whichever month the majority of the days (mon - fri) fall into, I want to fall into that month.
