Create a dataset with the series of busniess day in a month. Like 1st,2nd ,3rd and so on.

Trying to create a dataset by finding the series of working day in any given month of any given year. For example: I am creating on this posting date. Then I have to find in September of 2016 what are all the banking busniess day especially if I want for a particular country like Germany.

Oldie but goodie. You do need to manually list the holidays unfortunately. 

Since most SAS functions are for US holidays anyways the manual step is required for many methods.

If you have holidays , you need write some more code.



%let year=2016;
%let month=9;

data want;
 temp=mdy(&month,1,&year);
 do date=temp to intnx('month',temp,0,'e');
  if weekday(date) not in (1 7) then output;
 end;
 format date date9.;
 drop temp;
run;
