lbusdate

Last business date of month

Syntax

Date = lbusdate(Year, Month, Holiday, Weekend)

Arguments

Year

Enter as four-digit integer.

Month

Enter as integer from 1 through 12.

Holiday

(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.

Weekend

(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].

Description

Date = lbusdate(Year, Month, Holiday, Weekend) returns the serial date number for the last 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.

Examples

Example 1.

Date = lbusdate(2001, 5)
Date =

      731002
datestr(Date)
ans =

31-May-2001

Example 2. You can indicate that Saturday is a business day by appropriately setting the Weekend argument.

Weekend = [1 0 0 0 0 0 0];

May 31, 2003, is a Saturday. Use lbusdate to check that this Saturday is actually the last business day of the month.

Date = datestr(lbusdate(2003, 5, [], Weekend))
Date =

31-May-2003
