# Need help calculating number of weeks

Hello!,

I am interested to calculate how many weeks to finish a job
The file has job assigned date and completed date . I have matched up with weeks table to find the week  the job was assigned and week it is completed.

For example,  if the job was assigned in week 16 and completed in week 21 then I would want to find all weeks it is in process, then I will count each week how many are in process and put that number in a graph showing progress.

I am looking to pull data from week 16 to 32.

## Re: Need help calculating number of weeks

Hi:

Since the ultimate request is for a graph, I wonder whether the second DATA step is needed. You could do everything in one DATA step program and then just use PROC SGPLOT for the graph.

data testdata;

infile datalines dlm=',' dsd;

input R_ID assign : date9. survey \$ complete : date9.;

wk_id = week(assign);

assign_wk = week(assign);

comp_wk = week(complete);

num_wks= (comp_wk - assign_wk) + 1;

do i = assign_wk to comp_wk by 1;

plot_week = i;

output;

end;

label plot_week = 'Week';

return;

datalines;

## Re: Need help calculating number of weeks

Virus scanning seems to be taking a long time these days, perhaps consider embedding the data in your question.

Without seeing anything, I'd expand your data so that you have a record for each week for each project. Then you can summarize and graph from that data more easily.

data have;

input project \$ week_start week_have;

cards;

A 23 41

B 21 27

C 34 45

D 1 14

;

run;

data expand;

set have;

do week=week_start to week_have;

output;

end;

run;
