How to check time bucket in planning book

Dear all

We have a Time Bucket Profile which shows 18 month and the first 2 are shown in weeks.

How can I (in a macro) check whether the current column is a week column or a month column

Thanks in advance

Brian

    Hi,

    To dispaly the period details in Planning Book load the data and right click "period information" to get the details for the period.

    For daily bucket at the header level in a column the date is displayed, for monthly its dispalyed as M and for weekly its defined as W.

    I am not sure if this is the information you are looking for, in case of any issues revert back.

    Thanks,

    Sanjog

    Hi Sanjog

    thanx for your quick reply.

    How can I optain this information in a macro?

    The problem is that I need to lock some cells for input and I need this information to know how many buckets i need to read.

    Example: (Planning book today monday week 5 2008):

    W05.08 W06.08 W07.08 W08.08 W09.08 M03.08 M04.08

    and i need to lock untill april 2008. How can I calculate the number of iterations?

    thanks in advance

    Dear all

    Using the macro functions BUCKET_EDATE and TODAY I can calculate when to stop the iterations.

    Best regards
