# How to calculate only bussiness days

## How to calculate only bussiness days

(OP)
Hi !
I have following code

new_sasdate = input(osjomtpv,yymmdd8.);
-----------------

if new_sasdate - today() <= 5 then osinko ="DIVIDEND" ;
TEST=new_sasdate - today();
if TEST < 0 then osinko ="" ;

This calculate also Saturday and Sunday but I don't want that ?

Thanks for any help !

### RE: How to calculate only bussiness days

Maybe something like...

new_sasdate = input(osjomtpv,yymmdd8.);

if new_sasdate - today() <= 5 then osinko ="DIVIDEND";
else
if weekday(new_sasdate) = 1 then osinko ="";
else
if weekday(new_sasdate) = 7 then osinko ="";

TEST=new_sasdate - today();
if TEST < 0 then osinko ="" ;

Ok I have to try !

It must work like this !

Today is example Wednesday 6.4 and the new_sasdate = 12.4 so the test day (new_sasdate - today())should be 3 !?
