Hello,

 

I have a data set with a "Time" column. In this column, the data is saved in the DATETIME format (dd/mm/yyyy hh: mm). In VA, I managed to segregate the values into 2 new variables. The first being Date, the second being Time.

 

I, however, would like to now modify the DATE variable to exclude dates that are on the weekends. Can i get some help on this matter

 

Regards

Dan

Hi!

I mest you should add a FILTER, not to create a calculated item 🙂

But if you want that, just remove the ”<6” from your expression.

Hi!

You can add a filter with the following expression:

 

DayOfWeek('Date'n) < 6

Hello Mr Fredrick,

 

I thank you for your reply. However, when trying to input the formula, an error gets thrown stating that it is unable to carry out the process due to a type error.
