MDX IIF Statement to compare Moday's Date


Hi, I basically want to caluate the previous week


SELECT Tail(NonEmptyCrossJoin([Dim Date].[Year-Week].[Week Of Year])).Item(0).Item(0).lag(1) ON 0

However, if it's a Sunday then it should be:

SELECT Tail(NonEmptyCrossJoin([Dim Date].[Year-Week].[Week Of Year])).Item(0).Item(0) ON 0

So what I did was the following:

    SELECT IIF(Tail(NonEmptyCrossJoin([Dim Date].[Year-Quarter-Month-Day].[Day Of Week])).&[7]
                ,Tail(NonEmptyCrossJoin([Dim Date].[Year-Week].[Week Of Year])).Item(0).Item(0).lag(1)
                ,Tail(NonEmptyCrossJoin([Dim Date].[Year-Week].[Week Of Year])).Item(0).Item(0)
                ) ON 0
    FROM OLAP_Cube

However, I get The syntax for '&' is incorrect.

Any ideas?

How to retrive a date time value from TimeStamp column using Linq?


I have a Timestamp column in my Table. I want to read the date time value and display in UI.

In Linq the Timestamp column is represented as System.Data.Linq.Binary.

I dont know how to retirve date time value in "MM-dd-YYYY" format from this Linq.Binary


- Why I am using Timestamp?.

I want to perform some operations based on the last modified date time of the particular row. Since I am using TimeStamp column in my Table as version column, It will contain the last modified date details, So i want to read the date time value from this time stamp column to do some other operations.





        XDocument doc = XDocument.Load("http://localhost:49545/Default/XMLFile2.xml");

        var data = from c in doc.Descendants(XName.Get("tecajnica")).Descendants()
                   //where c.Attribute("oznaka").Value == "USD"
                   where c.Attribute("oznaka").Value == "USD" && c.Attribute("sifra").Value == "840"

Find the nearest date before Saturday, Sunday and holidays with Linq


 var tecaji = (from xml in doc.Descendants(slazhnmaespace + "tecajnica")
                      where xml.Attribute("datum").Value == "2010-10-158"
                      select xml).Elements().Where(a => a.Attribute("oznaka").Value.Equals("TRY")).Select(n => n.Value).SingleOrDefault();

I have dates that are not in the XML file, but value still has to show.

In the table there is no value for the date of 23.10.2010, 24.20.2010. How do you show value for the date 10/22/2010?

Finding the appropriate date, which is najbluzjemu to that in the table.

In this XML table is not displayed dates (Saturday - Sunday).

Therefore, to find the nearest date before Saturday and Sunday.

If it is Saturday, the date "02.10.2010" shall be the date of "01/10/2010.

How do I get to that solution?

compare date field in sharepoint designer without considering time



I  set date1 field in sharepoint designer with “set field in current item” action. And in next step I want to compare date1 with another date field. With “if date1 not equal to date2”

although I set  “Date & Time Format” to “Date only”, my problem is sharepoint designer consider time ( although my condition is true ,I think its compare the time of my date field and cant go next step) and I don’t want it. I want to compare date filed only with date,

what should I do, that sharepoint designer only consider Date in Date field in action?

Thanx a lot.

SharePoint Designer Workflow - how to compare the Items if it is modified date is older than 20 days


I have a workflow which will keep track of specific meta data selection for a Custom List, as soon as an item gets updated to a specific selection say it as Resolved, I am sending an email to an user.


But after this I will need to check for every item in the list that If an item gets resolved and older than 20 days, I will have to move this item to a different list. I can get the resolved item date, store it an variable, but from here I will need to check if the item is older than 20 days and if it is this needs to be moved.

My point is the work-flows will be fired only when an item gets changed or updated, how to keep track of every item in the list and automatically move the older items without any manual intervention.


Am I clear in my requirement, if not kindly let me know.

If you have knowledge, let others light their candles in it.

Playing with Linq grouping: GroupByMany?

One of its features is grouping. Many people understand grouping like it is defined in Sql. Linq is implementing grouping quite the same way. Let's discover this syntax and how to make consecutive groups easier.

LINQ : Implementing IN and NOT IN

I got tried of typing

var result = from s in source
where items.Contains(s)
select s;and so I implemented the IN and NOT IN methods as extension methods:

101 LINQ Samples Tutorials

101 LINQ Example with sample code snippets....This sample prints each element of an input integer array whose value is less than 5. The sample uses a query expression to create a new sequence of integers and then iterates over each element in the sequence, printing its value

Using a CompareValidator to check input is a valid date

The CompareValidator can do more than just compare two controls. You can also compare it against several of the main .net data types such as Date, Integer, Double and Currency.

To do this you would set Operator="DataTypeCheck" and instead of setting the ControlToCompare or ValueToCompare attributes as you normally would you use the Type="Date" (or any of the data types I have listed above).

Linq: how to share parameters between lambda expressions ?

When using Linq to objects, you will quickly feel the need to pass some parameters from a method to another but it's not so easy because each Linq method is not calling the following one. In a Linq sequence, each method is using the result computed by the previous one. So, local contexts are not visible from one method to another.
The compiler is using two technical different ways to let parameters go out of a method.
