Simulate R6 @Businessdays in R5

This tip describes how to simulate R6 @Businessdays in R5.

You had a look at R6 and the overhaul of the formula language. Nice updates. For calculation of working days @Businessdays replaces a lot of legacy script... However your client base is on R5. Don't worry you can have it in R5... Thanks to the power of lists.


 R6:
tmpWeekEnd:= 1:7;
tmpHolidays := [01/01/2003] :
 [15/01/2003] : [16/02/2003] :
 [28/05/2003] : [04/07/2003];
@BusinessDays(FirstDay;
Lastday;tmpWeekEnd;tmpHolidays)

R5:
tmpWeekEnd:= 1:7;
tmpHolidays := [01/01/2003] : 
[15/01/2003] : [16/02/2003] : 
[28/05/2003] : [04/07/2003];
REM "Create a textlist that 
contains all days in the period";
tmpDatelist := @Text(@Explode
(@TextToTime(@Text(Firstday)+"
 - "+@Text(Lastday))));
REM "Replace the holidays out of the list";
tmpNoHolidays := @TextToTime
(@Trim(@Replace(tmpDatelist;
@Text(tmpHolidays);"")));
REM "Remove Weekends";
tmpWeekdays := @Text(@Weekday
(tmpNoHolidays));
tmpWorkdays := @Trim(@Replace
(tmpWeekdays;@Text(tmpWeekEnd);""));
@Elements(tmpWorkdays)
