How can I convert a week number to an actual date?
This is more of a solution to a question I had.
To start, I'll tell you what I'm working with. I have a string which is my week number named `Week` and it looks like this:
- Week 1
- Week 2
- Week 3
I also have an integer of the four digit year (e.g. 2016) named `Year`.
From these I wanted to create a date recognized within Domo as a date. I built this within a Beastmode, but the code applies to SQL very closely:
WHEN `Year` = 2016
The String to Date function does the converstion of a string with a known or specified format into a date. The Concat puts the string elements together. Trim removes the white space and Right takes the specified rightmost characters. The Sunday in the code specifies that for my circumstance I want the date that begins with Sunday.
If your year was a string instead of an integer like mine the above code could be further simplified.
I hope this helps you out!
