Re: Generating the Custom Date based on the Work Week of the calendar

Hi,

I have defaulted the year to be 2020.

Try

Column1:

'WW'&Week(MakeDate('2020', Month(Date#(Subfield(Filebasename(),'_', 4), 'MMMDD')), Day(Date#(Subfield(Filebasename(),'_', 4), 'MMMDD'))))&'_' &

Year(MakeDate('2020', Month(Date#(Subfield(Filebasename(),'_', 4), 'MMMDD')), Day(Date#(Subfield(Filebasename(),'_', 4), 'MMMDD'))))

 

Column2:

Date(WeekEnd(MakeDate('2020', Month(Date#(Subfield(Filebasename(),'_', 4), 'MMMDD')), Day(Date#(Subfield(Filebasename(),'_', 4), 'MMMDD'))))+5, 'DD-MMMM-YYYY')

 

 For Column 1 you can also use the Filename like SubField(Filebasename(), '_',2)

Re: Generating the Custom Date based on the Work Week of the calendar

Assuming your file name would have a date, in it. (You can use Filebasename)

Try

'WW'&Week(FileBasename())&'_' &Year(FileBasename()) as Column1,
Date(WeekEnd(FileBasename())+5, 'DD-MMMM-YYYY') as Column2,

If you want only the Thursday's highlighted in Yellow to be used in Column2, you might've to get a list of dates for each year.

I don't think an excel in that format would be useful.
