WEEKNUM() not ISO proof

Hi, to be honest I’m not sure if it actually is a bug, but this function does not follow the ISO standard of numbering weeks.

For example, today (2016-10-13) should be week 41, but the function returns 42. Probably because the first week of this year was week 53 according to the international standards.

Never mind: I just found that DATETIME_FORMAT(NOW(), ‘W’) does return the ISO week number.

A reference in the formula editor (for WEEKNUM) would be helpful. :slight_smile:

That’s great, the only problem is that when using DATETIME_FORMAT, Monday is the first the of the week, but I just figured out a way to solve this (ie to make Sunday the first day AND use ISO week numbers), by adding +1 days like that:

VALUE(DATETIME_FORMAT(DATEADD(Date,1,"days"),"W"))

Note I used VALUE() to convert the week number into an actual number, not string
Hope this helps others too !
