Crystal Reports: determine date range in various weeks

Hello Experts,

I have a chart that list data points for each week.  The table that I am using only has a field called "reporting_year_week", which displays weeks like "2014-W27".  I need help writing a formula that will evaluate the "2014-W27" and provide the following dates range.  Here are examples:
06/09-06/15
06/16-06/22
06/23-06/29
06/30-07/06

Unfortunately, if I had a single date in the table then I would be able to use a formula like this, but I don't so I have to evaluate the "2014-W27".

local datetimevar start;
local datetimevar end;
start:= CurrentDate-weekday(CurrentDate,2)+1;
End:=start+6;
{@reporting_year_week} & chr(10)&
totext(start,"MM/dd") & "-" &  totext(end, "MM/dd")

Try this for the first day of the week

Local NumberVar myWeeks;

myWeeks := Val(Split({YourDateField},"W")[2]);

Date(DateAdd('ww',myWeeks,Date(2014,1,1)) - DayOfWeek (DateAdd('ww',myWeeks,Date(2014,1,1))) + 1)

Try this for the last day of the week
Local NumberVar myWeeks;

myWeeks := Val(Split({YourDateField},"W")[2]);

Date(DateAdd('ww',myWeeks,Date(2014,1,1)) - DayOfWeek (DateAdd('ww',myWeeks,Date(2014,1,1))) + 1) + 6
