How DO I - Calculate Working and Nonworking Day in #MSDynNAV & #MSDyn365bc.

Hi Readers,

In Last article we understand how to setup Base Calendar in #MSDynNAV & #MSDyn365bc. 

In this article we will see how we can utilize base calendar to check Working and Non-Working Days based on Calendar. 

This is actually a question during last #bcopendiscussion from Shahid Ullah.

Question - How to find the Workings Days in a month or from a given date range?

For the Demo, I will create a Page which will allow user to input a Start Date and End Date.

And the Result after the calculation will be -

  • Total No. of Days between Date Range.
  • Working Days between Date Range.
  • Non-Working Days between Date Range.

To achieve that we can use the Base Microsoft "Calendar Management" Codeunit.

Calendar Management have a function - CheckDateStatus which will check Date Status based on a Base Calendar Code specified. 

This Function will provide the Date Status as Working or Non Working. The Example that we discussed is from Business Central 14 C/AL Version.

For Business Central AL, the base Microsoft code is changed.

In Business Central a new function is added -

  • IsNonworkingDay
    • This function requires a date input that you want to check with Customized Calendar Change Record.
  • To invoke this function we first need to setup the Customized Calendar Change record for which there is a function to SetSource.
    • SetSource Requires a Record from where calendar code need to be picked and a Record for Customized Calendar Change.

You Can download Source Code from GitHub.

Hope you find the article useful.
