Calculating the No of days....

Hi All,

In my sales report, I need to calculate % time.

The user inputs a date and I need to calculate %Time as:

%TIME= Days lapsed upto that selected date in the month in which the selected date is present/total No of days in that month.

This formula is valid if the selected date is in the current month. If the selected date is not in current month:

%TIME = 100%

Can anyone tell me how to achieve this?

Thanks in advance

    You could use a formula variable that is filled by a user exit. The coding could look like this:

    * Calculate Time percentage
        check i_step = 2.
        READ TABLE I_T_VAR_RANGE into l_s_var_range 
             WHERE VNAM = 'IDATE'. "Input Date variable
        IF l_s_var_range-low(6) = sy-datlo(6).
    *     Same month
          l_s_range-sign = 'I'.
          l_s_range-opt  = 'EQ'.
          DATA: l_d_this_month type d,
                l_d_next_month type d,
                l_d_this_day   type d.
          l_d_this_day = l_s_var_range-low(8).
          l_d_next_month = l_d_this_month = sy-datlo.
    *     The following three lines determine the first
    *     of the next month
          l_d_next_month+6(2) = '28'.
          l_d_next_month = l_d_next_month + 4.
          l_d_next_month+6(2) = '01'.
    *     Set l_d_this_month
          l_d_this_month+6(2) = '01'.
    *     Calculate formula
          l_s_range-low = ( l_d_this_day - l_d_this_month 
                            + 1 ) /
                          ( l_d_next_month - l_d_this_month )
                          * 100.
    *     Other month
          l_s_range-sign = 'I'.
          l_s_range-opt = 'EQ'.
          l_s_range-low = '100'.

    I hope this helps a bit.

    Best regards

      I have a similar situation where we need to extract the no of days based on user input which is stored in variable Fiscal Period (0fper) as 2005002, for eg.(for Feb 2005).

      I am an ABAP illiterate. How should I change your code to get the result I want?

      Thank you,
