MOSS 2007 Calculate Due Date including working hours and working days

Hi, I've searched many forums for an answer to my problem but with very limited success. Basically, I've created a Sharepoint list where I would like to track a resolution of incidents versus SLA timings. I have a column with a receiving date, which is a date when the request was submitted and another column with priority code where I have 3 possible values: low (5 working days to close the request), medium (3 days) and high (1 day). What I would like to do is to automatically calculate due date for solving the incident based on the receiving date and the priority code. The thing is that now it is getting more complicated since I need to exclude saturdays and sundays from calculation, as well as national holidays. Then I would like to take into account working hours (from 8am to 4pm), for example if an incident with medium priority was submitted on Friday 5pm, then it would have its due date set to Wednesday 4pm (the request was sent after working hours so we have 3 full working days to complete it) Not sure if it is feasible to achieve using formulas, maybe some other way?

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!

Crawler fails to register date properties of user profiles with the month of January, April, August


This seems to be a bug when the crawler search the user profiles in MOSS 2007.  When crawled, user profiles with a SPS-HireDate in the months of January, April, August and December will be detected, but a full-text (SQL) search returns those profiles without the HireDate field.

User profiles with HireDates in other months work correctly, returning the HireDate in the search.  And changing the month of a problematic user profile also fixes the problem.

This problem is also reflected in the fact that while we have 499 user profiles using the SPS-HireDate property,  the managed property page from the search section only has 350 items with the HireDate property.

We're running MOSS 2007 32bit with SP2 with an English language base and the Spanish language pack. I'd considered date format problems, but I can't imagine how some months would work, while others wouldn't.

Any ideas?

month days in gridview


 Hello all,

I have a challenge of which I can't figure out how to achieve it.

at this moment I have a gridview that can be dynamicly filled with cell's based upon the number of items selected (throug a drop down list) by a user.

the user then can enter some values in the cells to perform a bulk insert.

What I rather want is that the user selects a month, like august, and then  the gridview is filled with the amount of days from that month, so you get 31 cells in the gridview. second all the first cells should be filled with the daynumber for that day...

I hope the explanation is clear :)


Does anyone know a solution to this?

How to create a calcuated member, which will always return the date one month before the currentmemb

I need to create a calculated member in the cube script, which will be subsequently used in various other script calculations.  It needs to return the date, which is 1 month before the currentmember of the Date dimension. I tried something like this: CREATE MEMBER CURRENTCUBE.[Measures].[LastPD]   AS           PARALLELPERIOD([Date].[Calendar].[Month], 1, [Date].[Calendar].currentMember) ,VISIBLE = 1; However when I then try to check the values with this query: SELECT [Measures].[LastPD] on 0, [Date].[Calendar].[Date].members on 1 FROM [TravCSAT] ; I only get NULLs for [LastPD].  Any idea what I am doing wrong?

Calculate Future Age and Date

I hope someone can help me. I am new to SharePoint and I was given the task to determine all the people who will be age 65 in 90 days from today (meaning current date), and display them in a list.

Date format for Year, Year-Month, and Date (Year-Month-Day) where input is not known

I have a requirement to capture historical events in a table. Now some events will have only Year, some Year/Month, and remaining where Date is known. We should be able to store them in the column and be able to sort etc. When publishing the information, we should be able to publish as was the input, Year only, Year-Month only, or Date. I looked at the newer Date data type. I can insert a 4 digit year, but on retrieving it is YYYY-01-01. I do not know if it has input YYYY or YYYY-MM-DD and is indeed a Date or a Year. I am trying to avoid saving the format information in another column or something. For sorting, when records have same Year, I would have another column to do relative sorting... So question is - what are my best options with SQL/Entity Framework combo. And what others have done, when encountering similar - if any. Thanks in advance. --Sharad

MDX problem: Return the number of days in a given selection/range

I've had this problem for a couple of days and found some "solutions" online. However, none of them worked. The goal is to calculate Inventory Turnover, but the problem is I can't seem to return the current number of days in the selection. The solution I found was: Count(Descendants([Date].[Date Hierachy], [Date].[Date Hierachy].[Date])) Which returned this: http://www.jandd.be/images/q_return.jpg However, I just want it to return the number of days that are in the selection, so the number of days between (incl) 22/08 and 25/09. This is a screenshot of my datedim, if it helps: http://www.jandd.be/images/q_datedim.jpg I can imagine this could be real simple or some setting that I didn't find on the dimensions, but it would be really appreciated if I could find a solution like this...
