How can I calculate the Number of Weekends between two dates

I need to be able to figure out the number of Saturdays and the number of Sundays between two dates.  I know that I can do this by looping through the series of dates between the start date and end date.  Years ago I saw a piece of code that an ex-co worker wrote that accomplished this task using a formula.  The formula was extemely effecient.  Unfortunately I no longer have access to this code.  Does anyone have an algorithm that will perform this calculation that I can make use of?  Thanks

How to calculate total work hours between dates?

I am in the process of creating a calendar.  This calendar is to track leave hours for employees.  For example if a person takes leave for 2.5 days then the formula would calculate 8hrs per day and 4 hours for half a day = 20hrs.  I have part of the formula I believe "=TEXT([End Time]-[Start Time],"h")".  The problem is that it does not count multiple days and just not working right. Any advice would help.

How to create a calculation in a list - Calculate the number of days between two dates


I have a calculated column in a list called Days Open. This column contains the number of days between today (Sysdate) and another column called the Effective Date. Therefore, if Sysdate is 11/16/2010 and the Effective Date is 10/14/2010, how do I calculate the number of days between the two dates?

I tried using this formula: =TEXT(Sysdate-[Effective Date],"h") and then I tried =INT(Sysdate-Effective Date) & TEXT(Sysdate-Effective Date, ":hh:mm")

Neither formula worked. I hope it is something real simple that I am missing here. Any help you can provide will be highly appreciated!

Business Modelling and Web Applications and extending UML

UML can be used to model a business, prior to automating it with computers. The same basic UML syntax is used, however, a number of new symbols are added, in order to make the diagrams more relevant to the business process world. A commonly-used set of these symbols is available in current versions of Rational Rose.

Calculate distance, bearing and more between Latitude/Longitude points

This page presents a variety of calculations for latitude/longitude points, with the formulæ and code fragments for implementing them.

All these formulæ are for calculations on the basis of a spherical earth (ignoring ellipsoidal effects) - which is accurate enough* for most purposes. [In fact, the earth is very slightly ellipsoidal; using a spherical model gives errors typically up to 0.3% - see notes for further details].

Business object design in master details.


Hello guys, I have the following scenario,

  1. There is a master business object containing 40 fields
  2. 2 separate child business objects
  3. If I update a child record, I have to update master's 'Last modify by' status along with 3 or more fields in master
  4. For this purpose, I don't want to initialize a separate Master class object (as most of the fields are unused/wasted)
  5. The 'last modify by' also gets updated if the records in master get updated themselves

Currently I have separate business objects for master table, Child 1, Child 2 etc.

How do I control this in my business object design ? Do I break up my master object ? Say I extract last 'modify by ' into a new class, through inheritance or some other way ?

Is there a way that whenever child gets updated I use a 'small' class to update Master status only and whenever the master itself gets updated I do the same.

Problem is that I am having redundancy in my small class (Master class also contains 'Last Modify By ',

What would you advice. Please have your say. Thank you.

Edit  I am using webforms guys.
