Excluding weekend and holidays in query

Excluding weekend and holidays in query

Excluding weekend and holidays in query

(OP)
I have a query which right now is subtracting two dates and then returning only those records which are <= 5. Here is a sample from the where clause:
(av.status_date - av.requested_date) <=5. We have to report Turn around times and need to exclude weekends and holidays. Can anyone tell me how to do it in a query.

RE: Excluding weekend and holidays in query

Holidays aren't built into Crystal.

Here's the whitepaper:

Although I suggest that you create a Period table which identifies all days with various attributes (Holiday, biz day, weekend, quarter, fiscal quarter, etc.), and then just join to it.

It's standard fare in a Data Warehouse, and should prove an invaluable resource for other types of reporting.

RE: Excluding weekend and holidays in query

How does one create a period table. Need to create a very complicated fiscal period that is made up of a pattern of weeks, 4 weeks/4weeks/5weeks....

RE: Excluding weekend and holidays in query

That would depend on your database, I responded to your other post.

Consider posting meaningful technical information when requesting it.
