Previous working date - Time dimensions

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 24, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server

Hi all,

I need an mdx to get the previous working day. 

I`ve got my complete time dimension, including weekends.  Every day member has got a Member Property that says wether it is a working day or not.  See table below.  Then, I need an mdx expression to return the "Prev working Day".  Any idea??

Data Types - Date and Time in SqlServer

Date and time values can be stored with either the DATETIME or SMALLDATETIME data type. The difference between the two is that SMALLDATETIME supports a smaller range of dates and does not give the same level of precision when accounting for time. The DATETIME data type can hold values from January 1st of 1753 to December 31st of 9999. The time is stored to the 1 three hundredths of a second and each value takes up 8 bytes of storage. The SMALLDATETIME data type can hold values between January 1st 1900 and June 6th of 2079. The time is tracked to the minute and each value takes up 4 bytes of storage. The majority of business applications can live happily with SMALLDATETIME, however, if you are in an environment where each second matters or you need to make estimates to the distant future (or past) then you have to resort to DATETIME. If you fail to specify the time when inserting a value into a DATETIME or SMALLDATETIME column, a default of midnight is used. If you fail to specify the date portion the default of January 1, 1900 is used.

Date/Time Conversions Using SQL Server

There are many instances when dates and times don't show up at your doorstep in the format you'd like it to be, nor does the output of a query fit the needs of the people viewing it. One option is to format the data in the application itself. Another option is to use the built-in functions SQL Server provides to format the date string for you.

Convert Update Date/Time to VB.NET



I was wondering if someone could convert this into VB.NET for me.  I'm not a PHP pro and not entirely sure what's happening here nor do I know how to get this to display the same way.

The new field is within a DetailsView, so you can give me example code as well, I'll greatly appreciate it.

Thanks.. -Jeff

PHP Code:

function updFormat($tStamp) {
	$tsTime = (strftime('%I', $tStamp) + 0) . strftime(':%M %p', $tStamp);
	// 86400 == # of seconds in a day
	$tsDays = floor($tStamp / 86400);
	$nowDays = floor(time() / 86400);
	if ($tsDays == $nowDays) $updTime = "Today at $tsTime";
	elseif ($tsDays == $nowDays - 1) $updTime = "Yesterday at $tsTime";
	else $updTime = strftime('%b ', $tStamp) . (strftime('%d', $tStamp) + 0) . strftime(', %Y' , $tStamp);

	return $updTime;

Server Time Dimensions - language mix

I'm making my first steps with SSAS and as part of my test project, I added a server based time dimension. During generation, I configured the langage to be German (Germany) (the machine and Visual Studio are set up in English). What is being generated is a mix between English and German though - the calendar year and quarters remain in English, and the months and day of week are in German. Shouldn't the whole hierarchy be in the language I chose? I'm using SQL Server 10.0.2531.

Should time date stamp on .Asmx file change when project is rebuilt?

I have a web service project. The web service is named Recalc.asmx and it has a code behind file namedRecalc.asmx.vb Now if I make a change to my web service .vb code and then recompile the project, should my Recalc.asmx filebe updated as well? In windows explorer I see that the time date stamp of my Racalc.asmx.vb file changes to the date of the last change.But the time date stamp of the Recalc.asmx file does not change? Why is that? My original thinking was that I would simply need to copy the Recalc.asmx file to the test server. But the date stillshows it's original creation date of 7/1/2010 and not the date of the last rebuild as I was hoping it would do?

validate date/time span and alow only time input

Hi, I have 2 small questions: 1. How can I  make a filed for input only time without date? 2. I need to make a date/time validation in form like: if(time between begin_date_field  and end_date_field) is not in intersection (time between begin_date_field  and end_date_field) of any item in list) Can I make this validation only using VisualStudio2010 or is there a simpler way? ( I need this for small list for managing reservations of conference rooms )
