# Immediate Friday of current date

Hi There,

We have a requirement to show the immediate Friday for provided date in data source instead of actual date of transaction. Below is the code to derive the same using  the tableau date function(Datename).

Immediate Friday Date :-

if datename('weekday',max([Date])) = 'Friday' then max([Date])

else if datename('weekday',max([Date])) = 'Monday' then date(max([Date]) + 4)

else if datename('weekday',max([Date])) = 'Tuesday' then date(max([Date]) +3)

else if datename('weekday',max([Date])) = 'Wednesday' then date(max([Date]) +2)

else if datename('weekday',max([Date])) = 'Thursday' then date(max([Date]) +1)

else if datename('weekday',max([Date])) = 'Saturday' then date(max([Date]) +6)

else if datename('weekday',max([Date])) = 'Sunday' then date(max([Date]) +7)

end end end end end end end

Hope this helps other to derive date for such kind of requirements.

Thanks & regards,

SD

Better Performing Case statement to achieve Immediate Friday for give date.

CASE datename('weekday',max([Date]))

WHEN 'Friday' then max([Date])

WHEN 'Monday' then date(max([Date]) +4)

WHEN 'Tuesday' then date(max([Date]) +3)

WHEN 'Wednesday' then date(max([Date]) +2)

WHEN 'Thursday' then date(max([Date]) +1)

WHEN 'Saturday' then date(max([Date]) +6)

WHEN 'Sunday' then date(max([Date]) +5)

END
