## SSAS Calendar Week commencing with split at month

 Author Message chris.sennett Grasshopper Group: General Forum Members Points: 14 Visits: 226 Hi all,Wonder if someone can help.Our CFO wants to see a cube calendar that shows week commencing but stops at the end of month.For example if the dates areMonday 28th Tuesday 29th Wednesday 30th Thursday 1st Friday 2ndSaturday 3rdSunday 4thSo for this example the week commencing is the 28th of Month 1 and Thursday is week commencing 1st of the next.I am having a problem seeing how I can do this.If I add the weeks to a standard calendar I get the week commencing 28th which includes the 7 days, naturally.I cannot help feeling I am missing something obvious.Cheers Daniel Bowlin SSCarpal Tunnel Group: General Forum Members Points: 4136 Visits: 2629 I think this might give some odd results when browsing the cube. However, it should be do-able.I would probably keep a natural calendar week as part of the dimension, where weeks always start on Monday(?) and end on Sunday(?). If I understand your statement you want to end up with partial weeks, not start the weeks on a different day of the week when the months transition. I would probably do something like a week of month column and a start date for week of month column. The week of month would be populated with 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. The start date for the week of the month column would be populated with something like 1-Sep-10, 6-Sep-10, 13-Sep-10, 20-Sep-10 and 27-Sep-10. I would probably also include, depending on your needs, a column that indicates the number of days in that month week. So the first week of September would have 5 as the number of days in the month week #1.Hope this helps. chris.sennett Grasshopper Group: General Forum Members Points: 14 Visits: 226 Thanks for that.I see where you are going. This is a new dimension table for the calendar you specifiy.Or I could add columns to our existing calendar dimension.Cheers. Daniel Bowlin SSCarpal Tunnel Group: General Forum Members Points: 4136 Visits: 2629 I would probably add to the existing dimension. chris.sennett Grasshopper Group: General Forum Members Points: 14 Visits: 226 Thanks all.Adding to the existing one is what I am testing now. Parthiv Patel Forum Newbie Group: General Forum Members Points: 1 Visits: 32 I am very new to BI and also having the same requirement of partial weeks between months. My query is how you calculate Pervious Year MTD and Previous Year YTD with such Date dimensions?Thanks in advance! Ed B Say Hey Kid Group: General Forum Members Points: 697 Visits: 1787 So the weeks can have anywhere from 1 to 7 days in them?How is that useful?"oh look our revenue this week is 7 times last week, good job team!".
