I would add one thing to Peter's solution. Since &SYSDATE returns the date when the SAS session was started it is not always the current date. You could simply substitute the TODAY() function, in its own SYSFUNC, for &SYSDATE.

Something like:

%sysfunc( intnx( week, %sysfunc(today()) , -1, ending ) )

The derivation (today()-weekday(today())) looks like you want the last day of last week

It can be done in the %sysfunc environment, like %sysfunc( intnx( week, "&sysdate"d, -1, ending ) )

It will deliver a number of days since 1960, but that seems to be what you need if '06oct01'd is appropriate

Good Luck Peter Crawford

Hi all,

I have a problem that seemed trivial when I looked at it first but that now is giving me all kinds of headaches.

I have an axis statement that looks like this:

axis1 order = ('06oct01'd to '29jun02'd by 7);

It works fine but now I want to be able to change the endpoints by using a formula. Something like:

axis1 order = ('06oct01'd to (today()-weekday(today())) by 7);

I get an error when I try that, can anybody tell me how could I code it soo that I don't have to be manually updating this axis statement every week?

Thanks a lot,
