Counting Consecutive Workdays
« on: 19 Oct 2021 03:23:09 pm »
I am wondering if there is a way to count the consecutive days worked somehow.

Something like the attached. I used one month of data for one person but there could be a whole years data for multiple people

Hopefully this makes sense

Sorry for the paste of data but I keep getting a Cannot access attachments upload path error no matter what file type I try or what PC I try

The attachment is... what?  If it's plain text, pastebin.com should work well.

Maybe your attachment will demonstrate, but what do you mean?  Do you mean consecutive business days (omitting weekends and holidays) worked between non-worked (paid leave, leave without pay, etc.) business days?  Worked business days between the last leave day and today?  In other words, employee A has worked x days without taking any time off?

If nothing else, you're going to have to set up a calendar table, with all of the dates and something that will identify whether each day is a working day or not.

I still cannot get any attachment to stick. Tried multiple file formats and multiple pcs. I pasted it in as text with the data returned from the query at the top and the sample report at the bottom. Not ideal but at least now you can see what I am talking about

In excel this formula seems to work but translating it to Cognos is a struggle

=MAX(FREQUENCY(IF('Days Worked'!M5:GK5>0,COLUMN('Days Worked'!M5:GK5)),IF('Days Worked'!M5:GK5<=0,COLUMN('Days Worked'!M5:GK5))))

in this formula the 'Days Worked' tab and columns M5:GK5 are the date values
