By Joe Booth,
This function returns a table of "holidays" for any given year. Rather than build a table of holidays and update it each year, this UDF stores holiday rules as procedural logic and computes the holidays of any year...
To use the function, you should first review the code and comment out any holidays you might not want to include, or possibly add any additional holidays. There are three "rules" for computing holidays dates.
Once the function contains your set of holidays, you can use the function just as you would a normal SQL table. For example, the following SQL line
SELECT * FROM holiday_list(2011) ORDER BY Holiday_date
T-SQL Function to Determine Holidays in SQL Server
I need to find a way to skip holidays for a scheduled job.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from SQLServerCentral
A way to save holiday records that can be created as needed into a search-able calendar table.
I hope everyone is enjoying the holidays. To everyone in the SQL Server community,
