## Need to calculate first Monday in February for fiscal calendar

Hello Everyone,

I'm trying to create a master calendar with fiscal weeks and year.

My fiscal week should start from First Monday of February as Fiscal Week 1.

So, i wanna automate something which should not change with respect to year.

Any help is highly appreciated!

I tried the following, but no luck. It changes year by year.

if(week(TempDate) > 5,week(TempDate)-5, week(TempDate) + 47) As [Fiscal Week],

if((week(TempDate) < 5), (year(TempDate)-1), year(TempDate)) as [Fiscal Year],

Give this a try:

Table:

If(Week(Date, 0)< Week([First Monday]), Week(Date, 0) + 47, Week(Date, 0) - 5) as [Fiscal Week],

Week(AddMonths(Date, -1) - Day([First Monday]) + 1) as [Fiscal Week1],

'FY' & If(Month(Date) = 'Feb' and Day(Date) < Day([First Monday]), Year([First Monday]) - 1, Year([First Monday])) as [Fiscal Year];

WeekStart(MonthStart(YearStart(Date, 0, 2)) + 6, 0, 0) as [First Monday],

MonthName(Date) as MonthYear;

LOAD Date(MakeDate(2013,12,31) + RecNo()) as Date

AutoGenerate 1460;

Try may be this:

WeekStart(MonthStart(TempDate) + 6, 0, 0) -> to find first Monday for each month

Sunny,

It's working  for 2015 and 2016.

But when i checked for 2017...

it is showing fiscal year as 2017 from 2/1/2017 !!

It should show fiscal year 2016 till 2/6/2017 right???

From 2/7/2017, it should show the fiscal year 2017.

Got it. Try this:

Table:

'FY' & If(Month(Date) = 'Feb' and Day(Date) <= Day([First Monday]), Year([First Monday]) - 1, Year([First Monday])) as [Fiscal Year];

WeekStart(MonthStart(YearStart(Date, 0, 2)) + 6, 0, 0) as [First Monday],

MonthName(Date) as MonthYear;

LOAD Date(MakeDate(2013,12,31) + RecNo()) as Date

AutoGenerate 1460;

Sunny, as of my requirement, i just removed the less = symbol in the condition which is calculaitng the fiscal year and it worked

My actual problem is, when we calculate the fiscal week,

fiscal week changes for every year's week.

Can we make the script so as to consider the fiscal week as 1, when we encounter the first monday in feb.??

I'm using this:

if(week(TempDate)< Week(WeekStart(MonthStart(YearStart(TempDate, 0, 2)) + 6, 0, 0)), week(TempDate) + 47, week(TempDate)-5) as Fiscal week

to make a fiscal week start from the first monday of every february.

But, since i'm givign 5 in the condition, it is giving fiscal week '0' for few years

MonthName(Date) as MonthYear;

LOAD Date(MakeDate(2013,12,31) + RecNo()) as Date
