Question on Formula



I'm trying to create a Line Item Formula in where every 10th of the Month/ or next business day, Money comes out of another Line Item. Please advice. 


Thank you

Re: Question on Formula



There are 5 line items you will need to set up. I've attached screenshots below:


1) A line item that is populated with the current date. This will be the input to the logic described below



2) A line item that uses the DAY() formula which returns the day # of the month




3) A line item that uses the WEEKDAY() formula to return the number of the day of the week it is. (Monday = 1, Sunday = 7)



4) A line item which calculates days till next business day (if the 10th falls on a Saturday or Sunday). This will have a condition that if it is a business day it resolves to 0


5) Finally a boolean which will determine when the value should be pulled from the original line item to the new line item


Below you will find the blueprint details

So, I have a slightly different way of doing than Austin did, but will get you home nonetheless.


Create a list of Days (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, etc...) with the code being the day of the week.



Create a SYS Days Properties module with a line item called Add Days.  This will be entered by the admin, 2 for Saturday, 1 for Sunday:




Create a SYS Time Day Module which is dimensonalized by Time at the Day level.

Line items:

  • Days of Week
    • formula: weekday(start()) formatted as Number
  • Day List
    • formula: finditem(Days, Text(Days of Week)) formatted as List
  • Day To Send Money - this could also be used for the last day money was sent
    • formula: IF DAY(START()) = 10 THEN START() + SYS Days Properties.Days to Add[LOOKUP: Day List] ELSE PREVIOUS(Day to Send Money)
      • formatted as Date
  • Send Money? - not sure if you need this, but if you want to filter the days that money was sent, this would be a good option.
    • formula: START() = Day to Send Money
      • fomatted as Boolean
