## Be sure that we're in working day..

Hi guys ( stalwar1‌ )

Afer a loong day, I really can't think anymore

so, I really need ur help; the question is rather simple:

if I select a date; I want to go back one Month.

the expression I'm using is:

date( date(Today()-1)- round( MonthEnd(Today()-30)- MonthStart(Today()-30)))

But, with that, going back from 12/12/2017 using this: I got 12/11/2017 which is a sunday.. How can I go back to the closest WORKING DATE (monday or friday) ?

Thanks !

To go back to Nov 10th

=FirstWorkDate(Date(Date(Today()-1) - Round(MonthEnd(Today()-30)- MonthStart(Today()-30))), 1)

To go forward to Nov 13th

=LastWorkDate(Date(Date(Today()-1) - Round(MonthEnd(Today()-30)- MonthStart(Today()-30))), 1)

Maybe something like this:

date( date(Today()-1)-networkdays(MonthStart(Today()-30)), date(Today()-1))

Hope it helps,
