I am creating a simple design studion project request form where the user can enter how many photographs need to be ordered. I am calling this field 'NumImages'. Then once the data is entered, another field (I am calling this NumDaysImage) will be calculated based on the fact that no more than 5 photographs can be shot per day. So, 1-5 photos = 1 day. 6-10 photos = 2 days. 11-15 photos = 3 days etc. I do not need to calculate part days, so 6 photos is the same as 10 i.e. 2 days.
Once I have calcuated 'NumDaysImage', I then need to calculate an end date called 'DateDue'. The start date is entered by the user in the field 'DateStart'.
I know this is not going to be easy, but how can I calculate 'DateDue' based on a Mon-Fri working week, and ideally excluding UK public holidays?
Also on the form is a value 'NumDays' that is the number of days for designing the brochure for the photos. This value I have calculated already, but it will need to be added to 'NumDaysImage' to get a total number of production days that is then used to calculate 'DateDue'.
Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
Dates are more complicated calculation as the starting date needs to be converted to a number and then one can calculate the ending date and test that date to see if is a Sunday or Saturday. Do intervening weekends add to the number of days for processing.
Intervening weekends do indeed add to the number of days for processing. I am a total newbie on this, so thanks for the pointers.
