First business date of month
Date = fbusdate(Year, Month, Holiday, Weekend)
Enter as four-digit integer.
Enter as integer from 1 to 12.
(Optional) Vector of holidays and nontrading-day dates. All dates in Holiday must be the same format: either serial date numbers or date strings. (Using date numbers improves performance.) The holidays function supplies the default vector.
(Optional) Vector of length 7, containing 0 and 1, the value 1 indicating weekend days. The first element of this vector corresponds to Sunday. Thus, when Saturday and Sunday form the weekend (default), then Weekend = [1 0 0 0 0 0 1].
Date = fbusdate(Year, Month, Holiday, Weekend) returns the serial date number for the first business date of the given year and month. Holiday specifies nontrading days.
Year and Month can contain multiple values. If one contains multiple values, the other must contain the same number of values or a single value that applies to all. For example, if Year is a 1-by-n vector of integers, then Month must be a 1-by-n vector of integers or a single integer. Date is then a 1-by-n vector of date numbers.
Use the function datestr to convert serial date numbers to formatted date strings.
This example shows how to return serial date numbers for the first business date, given year and month.
Date = fbusdate(2001, 11) datestr(Date) Year = [2002 2003 2004]; Date = fbusdate(Year, 11) datestr(Date)
Date = 731156 ans = 01-Nov-2001 Date = 731521 731888 732252 ans = 01-Nov-2002 03-Nov-2003 01-Nov-2004
This example shows how to return serial date numbers for the first business date, given year and month, and also indicate that Saturday is a business day by setting the Weekend argument. March 1, 2003, is a Saturday. Use fbusdate to check that this Saturday is actually the first business day of the month.
Weekend = [1 0 0 0 0 0 0]; Date = datestr(fbusdate(2003, 3, , Weekend))
Date = 01-Mar-2003
