Wierd Week

Wierd Week

(OP)
I need to group payroll data by week. The problem is, my client's week starts on a Monday and ends on a Sunday.
How do I tell the group expert to sort on that kind of week?

I know that there is a place to enter a formula, I just can't figure it out.

Thanks,

Try this method, but make sure you read the warning at the bottom:

Thanks Ken,

I should have looked at your site in the first place.

RE: Wierd Week

I had to do this a while ago with a week that began on a Tuesday.

I created a formula {@XDATE} with a hard-coded date that was a Tuesday.

Then my formula [@WKGROUP} is DATEDIFF('w',{@XDATE},{table.date})

RE: Wierd Week

Interesting,

Charliy's formula yields an integter (week number) while Ken's yields a date, the first day of the week.
Both are very useful.

thanks,

Howard
