## Converting Week and Year for Week 53 to Show Week 01 for Next Year

Hi,

I'm having difficulties in converting week and year for week  53 (Dec 30 and 31, 2018) to be week 01 for 2019. Please note I am using storage mode as DirectQuery.

Currently what I have is Plan Date which contains the dates only.

I used this DAX formula to derive the week number: Week = CONCATENATE("",Right(CONCATENATE("0",WEEKNUM([Plan Date])),2))

I used this DAX formula to derive the year number: Year = CONCATENATE("",Right(CONCATENATE("0",YEAR([Plan Date])),4))

After getting week and year number, I then combine them using DAX formula:

Year/Week = CONCATENATE([Year],CONCATENATE("/",[Week]))

I don't want to use an IF statement wherein "2018/53" will be "2019/01" since I need to manually change it every year. Is there any convenient way to convert year x/week 53?

Thanks and best regards,

Mark

You can change your calculated columns for week and year slightly, and get the desired results without having to change it every year.

Weeknum = CONCATENATE("",Right(CONCATENATE("0",IF(WEEKNUM(Sheet1[SampleDate]) > 52, 1, WEEKNUM(Sheet1[SampleDate]))),2))

Year = CONCATENATE("",Right(CONCATENATE("0", IF(WEEKNUM(Sheet1[SampleDate]) > 52, YEAR([SampleDate]) +1, YEAR(Sheet1[SampleDate]))),4))

Hi there

In my case, when I try the formula:

Weeknum = CONCATENATE("",Right(CONCATENATE("0",IF(WEEKNUM(Sheet1[SampleDate]) > 52, 1, WEEKNUM(Sheet1[SampleDate]))),2))

it says that there are too many arguments in function Concetenate... The max. is 2.

Can you help me with that?

BR,

Anna

Hi, Could you please share the formula (copy-paste) from your report. There might be an issue with placement of commas (,) in the formula.
