Difference in working days between two dates

Post by M » Wed Oct 23, 2002 12:33 pm


How can it be calculated the difference in working days between two dates at query level and cube level (update rules)?

Thank you!

Haven't tried in query, but in update rules, you can subtract dates one from another (higher - lower) if the dates are type d and the result is type i or p.

I think what you need to do is to make use of the factory clanedar for that plant for calcualting the workdays between those two dates. The factory calendar that you have in R/3 should be availble in BW also when you transfered the global settings from R/3 to BW.

You can use the date as a KYF . look at the infoobject 0DATE_KYF and create similar Objects and add them to the transfer rules. You can then calculate the difference etc..

Note : If u r creating a new KYF create the same as 0DATE_KYF. The aggregation (tab in the infoobject maintenance screen) should be the same as the above.

Hope this works for u
