Need some help with the following:

I need to return the total weeks for a given fiscal period and the current week

example: Fiscal period 3  (9/29/2013 - 12/28/2013)

Total Weeks:  13
Current week: 6

I will have a formula in the report that will list the fiscal period quarter dates:

example:

Fiscal period 1: 3/31/2013 - 6/29/2013
Fiscal period 2: 6/30/2013 - 9/28/2013
Fiscal period 3: 9/29/2013 - 12/28/2013
Fiscal period 4:  12/29/2014-3/29/2014

I don't know how you are determining the fiscal periods but you can get the weeks with this.  It will always be 13 unless they mess up the dates

DateDiff("ww",{Fiscal Period start},{Fiscal Period End}+1)

Similarly for this week

DateDiff("ww",{Fiscal Period start},Today)

yes, you are correct. There will also be a total of 13 weeks. So how do I determine the current week I am in. They only way I have to pull date is using formula for current date.

I tried this formula and got the following

DateDiff("ww", date (9/29/2013) ,Today)

returned 5942

I am wanting it to return 6

The Date function expects to see 3 numbers for the Year, month, day or a string in the form of April 23, 2013 or a date/datetime field from the database
