The number of trading days per month for each year can be stored in IFP databases together with a label for each day. These trading day labels are used when importing daily sales data to map data to the relevant month of each year.
To view and edit trading days:
- From IFP Home select Databases / Files > Database Manager
- Select Trading Days > Trading Days Maintenance
Editing Trading Days
To edit trading day labels for any month, select the required month and click on Day Labels on the tool bar.
Note that the same date format must be used for all months for all years.
This format may be any valid date format, but for mappinmgs purposes you are strongly recommended to use DD/MM/YYYY, DD.MM.YYYY or local equivalent (e.g. MM/DD/YYYY is used in some countries).
Dates must use the full format, e.g. 5th August must be entered as 05/08/2011 and not 5/8/2011.
