End of Week Calculation

ngoda Registered Posts: 2


I have a date column in my data and wants to increment the date (i.e. Monday, 7/11/2022) to the end of the week (i.e. Saturday, 12/11/2022 ). I saw the other the post for month end calculation and it worked perfectly for my case but struggling to modify it to make end of the week.

How can I do that?

    Hi @ngoda

    This custom Python function calculates the end of the week (Saturday) based on the input date column line:

    import datetime
    from datetime import timedelta
    def process(row):
        current = datetime.datetime.strptime(row["line"],'%m/%d/%y')
        start = current- timedelta(days=current.weekday())
        end = start + timedelta(days=5)
        return row

    Thanks for the prompt response. I also figured how to do this using the DSS processor.

    2 steps process

    1. Calculate the difference in days between current day to Sunday. (Monday = 1 and Sunday is 7)

    2. Then add that difference to the original date to get to the last day of the week (i.e. Saturday)
