Refactoring a Holiday Work Week function

Have a system that creates schedule inspections for months in advance.

Trying to refactor my functions and calculations to make it recursive so each date that is shifted to avoid holiday and off days are also tested to make sure that the suggested date does not fall on a holiday or off day. 

here is my CF that I am using to test for holiday.

/*

 *		It should be modified to include any holidays observed by the users of

Let ( [

theYear = Case ( IsValid ( GetAsDate (theDate) ) ; Year ( theDate ) ; GetAsNumber ( theDate ) ) ; 

@nyd = "New Years Day" ;
nyd = Date ( 1 ; 1 ; theYear ) ;

@mlk = "Martin Luther King, Jr. Day" ; // (3rd Monday in January)
mlk = Date ( 1 ; 15 ; theYear )	// earliest possible date
      + Choose ( DayOfWeek ( Date ( 1 ; 1 ; theYear ) ) - 1;

@md = "Memorial Day"; // (last Monday in May)
md = Date ( 5 ; 25 ; theYear )	// earliest possible date

//LIST OF HOLIDAY DATES
major = List ( nyd ; id ; td ; xe ; xd ; nye ) ;

];

Choose ( return ; dates ; holiday ; name ; hCount ; minor; holidayMinor; major; holidayMajor ) 

)

Here is my function for avoiding holidays and Friday's & Saturday's

/*
 * =====================================
 * HolidayShift ( theDate )
 *
 * RETURNS:
 *		The next workday not holiday, friday, saturday
 *
 * PARAMETERS:
 *		theDate
 *
 * DEPENDENCIES: 
 *       BusinessHolidays (theDate ; return)
 *
 * NOTES:
 *		
 *
 * HISTORY:
 *		MODIFIED on 2016-08-19 by Stephen Dolenski
 * =====================================
*/

Let ( [

@date= GetAsDate ( theDate ) ; 

@shift = @date  + not IsEmpty ( BusinessHolidays ( @date ; 2 ) ) ; 

@weekend = @shift + Case( DayOfWeek ( @shift ) = 6 ; 2 ; DayOfWeek ( @shift  ) = 7 ; 1  ) 

];

@weekend + not  IsEmpty ( BusinessHolidays ( @weekend  ; 2 ) )

)

This is the field that should return the results, the only extra thing is that we push forward all inspections that are tagged for AM to the next day (non holiday)  if they fall on Sunday.

Let ( [

a = HolidayShift ( Date ( Month(schedule::ScheduleDate) ; PlanDay ; Year ( schedule::ScheduleDate) ) ) ;

b = HolidayShift ( a ) ;

c = Case ( DayOfWeek ( b ) = 1 and AM_PM = "AM" ;  HolidayShift ( b + 1 ) ; b ) 


];

HolidayShift ( c )

)

I keep having to test each proposed date to make sure that is a real work day, thinking there is a better way to optimize this.

I don't think so. There is no way to calculate if a date is a holiday without testing it against all possible holidays.

That doesn't look right. Doesn't the function return a list of holidays in the year of @date? That list will never be empty.

The first function will return the following: 

0 return list of major and minor dates
1 return list of major and minor holiday names
2 the name of the holiday if the date matches
3 count of holidays in the month
4 list of minor holiday dates
5 list of minor holiday names
6 list of major holiday dates
7 list of major holiday names

not IsEmpty ( BusinessHolidays ( @date ; 2 ) ) ;

 

that would return a 1 if it is a holiday

<shrug> That's not what it says on the label.

Perhaps you should call the function only once, then test each date against the returned list. But you would have to mind the end of a year.
