# INTCK Holidays

Hi All

Can somebody help me with this?

I use this to calculate turnaround time for working days Mon. -  Fry.:

TAT = intck ('weekdays', recivedate, sentdate)

Is it possible to omit bank holydays for different countries in this statement?

Thank you in advance.

You can make a interval by yourself, then use this interval at intck()

Hi Ksharp

Thank you for quick respond.

I'm not sure how to make my own intervals. I found this  example for custom intervals  to omit holidays when counting business days in the function INTCK:

I don't know how to adjust this to my holiday list.

options intervalds=(BankingDays=BankDayDS);

data BankDayDS(keep=BEGIN);

start = '15DEC1998'D;

stop = '15JAN2002'D;

nwkdays = INTCK('WEEKDAY',start,stop);

do i = 0 to nwkdays;

BEGIN = INTNX('WEEKDAY',start,i);

year = YEAR(BEGIN);

if BEGIN ne HOLIDAY("NEWYEAR",year) and

BEGIN ne HOLIDAY("MLK",year) and

BEGIN ne HOLIDAY("USPRESIDENTS",year) and

BEGIN ne HOLIDAY("MEMORIAL",year) and

BEGIN ne HOLIDAY("USINDEPENDENCE",year) and

BEGIN ne HOLIDAY("LABOR",year) and

BEGIN ne HOLIDAY("COLUMBUS",year) and

BEGIN ne HOLIDAY("VETERANS",year) and

BEGIN ne HOLIDAY("THANKSGIVING",year) and

BEGIN ne HOLIDAY("CHRISTMAS",year) then

output;

end;

format BEGIN DATE.;

run;

have a look at "Custom Time Intervals" at

http://support.sas.com/documentation/cdl/en/etsug/63939/HTML/default/viewer.htm#etsug_intervals_sect...

although it belongs among doc for SAS/ETS, it applies

Peter,

I have to wonder why intervalds was moved to the ETS documentation.  It has always been in the base SAS docs (e.g., http://support.sas.com/documentation/cdl/en/lrdict/64316/HTML/default/viewer.htm#a003252593.htm ).
