# Generate the remaining days of the current month

HI all,

I am working on building master calendars and would like some tips to auto generate the current month's FUTURE dates.

I can create a future date and autogenerate all the dates between but would have to remember to update this anytime that predetermined date comes around.

I would also like to add the Work days, and Total days to my data.

Is there any easy way to accomplish this?

My current Calendar looks like:

MinMaxDate:

Resident ABC;

LET vMinDate = PEEK('MinDate',-1,'MinMaxDate')-1;

LET vMaxDate = '12/31/2017';

Drop Table MinMaxDate;

// Master Calendar for fiscal year

Calendar:

Load Dual(fYear-1 &'/'& fYear, fYear) AS FYear,

Dual(Month, fMonth) AS FMonth,

DUAL ('Quarter' & Ceil(fMonth/3), Ceil(fMonth/3)) AS FQuarter,

*;

Load Year + IF(Month>=\$(vFM), 1,0) As fYear,

Mod(Month-\$(vFM),12)+1 As fMonth,

DUAL('Quarter' & Ceil(Month/3), Ceil(Month/3)) AS Quarter,

*;

Year(Salesdate) As Year,

Month(Salesdate) as Month,

Week(Salesdate) as Week

Resident ABC;

LOAD Date(recno()+\$(vMinDate)) As visitdate AutoGenerate vMaxDate - vMinDate;

Maybe like

LET vMaxDate = Floor(MonthEnd(Today(1)));

Hey Stefan,

Thank you!

That seems to have done the trick. Can you help explain the Floor* syntax purpose in this for me? My understanding is that Floor rounds values down, which is why I tried Ceil* but was unlucky.
