I don't think IBM provides anything for week numbers because there's too
much discrepancy in what a week number is. i.e., Does your week begin on
Sunday or Monday? And do your weeks begin numbering from the first full
week the week with the first Sunday/Monday/etc.?

You could code one by multiplying the weeknumber by 7 and adding the
result to the Lilian date for the 1st of January of the requested year.
Then you still have to adjust things depending on what week really starts
the year in your organizations standards.

[COBOL400-L] API for week numbers.

Hello.

I need an API that can receive weeknumber/year and return a
date/date range.(Please enclose parameter description as well)
I'm already using CEEDATE, CEEDAYS and CEEDYWK, but I can't see that
function in any of them.

Any ideas?


Mvh.
