Hello to everybody, i must know number of actual week. For example: today is 06/06/2012 and we are in week 23. I find a solution by S7 algorit but i think there is an S7 block. Someone can show me this Siemens FB or FC, if it exist? Best regards

dear friend, Convert date and time of day to the DATE_AND_TIME format FC3: D_TOD_DT Extract the date from the DATE_AND_TIME format FC6: DT_DATE Extract the day of the week from the DATE_AND_TIME format FC7: DT_DAY Extract the time of day from the DATE_AND_TIME format FC8: DT_TOD try this

There is no standard function to define number of week, sorry. So if you have written your own algo  just use it :^)

Hello basket; I don't believe there is an application in Step 7 to calculate the number of the week. But Wikipedia has an illustratioon of the algorithm you would need to calculate it, and it does not seem too complex (if you prepare a lookup table for the year and use the information on the DT functions shown earlier): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_week_date#Calculating_the_week_number_of_a_given_date Hope this helps, Daniel Chartier

Hello Basket_78 the OSCAT library contains a "work_week" function which will calculate the week of the year in accordance with ISO8601. All Blocks are written in SCl,but should it interest you you go to http://www.oscat.de/downloadmanager.htmland downloadthe "oscat_basic_332_S7" library as well asthe english pdf documentation. 
Cheers

This little bit of code will do the trick for you I reckon . I have given it a quick test and it seems to work OK. [code] FUNCTION_BLOCK FB996 TITLE = 'Date of year' AUTHOR : Smiffy VAR_OUTPUT WEEK_NUM : INT; // Week number of year END_VAR VAR_TEMP DateAndTime : DT; // Date and time structure pointer to allow structure address below to be set DaT AT DateAndTime : STRUCT // Date and time structure to allow DT type to be disassembled Year : BYTE; // Current year (1990 to 2089  2 digits) Month : BYTE; // Current month (1 to 12) Day : BYTE; // Current day (1 to 31) Hour : BYTE; // Current hour (0 to 23) Minute : BYTE; // Current minute (0 to 59) Second : BYTE; // Current second (0 to 59) MSD : BYTE; // Most significant decade of current ms (0 to 99) LSD_Weekday : BYTE; // MSB = Least significant decade of current ms (0 to 9), LSB = Current weekday (1=Sunday to 7=Saturday) END_STRUCT; RetVal : INT; // Return Value of FC calls iYear : INT; // Integer value of year iMonth : INT; // Integer value of month Month_30 : INT; // Number of completed 30 day months Month_31 : INT; // Number of completed 31 day months Elapsed_Days : INT; // Number of completed elapsed days since start of year OrdinalDay : INT; // Current day number in current year END_VAR RetVal := READ_CLK(CDT := DateAndTime); IF RetVal >= 0 THEN // If READ_CLK Fc was successful iYear := BCD_TO_INT(DaT.Year); // Extract 2 digit year (yy) from DT and convert to integer format iMonth := BCD_TO_INT(DaT.Month); // Extract 2 digit month (mm) from DT and convert to integer format IF iMonth <> 1 THEN // If January has been passed (at least one complete month has elapsed) Month_31 := iMonth / 2; // Calculate the number of 31 day months passed (assuming alternating 31, 30 day month pattern) IF (iMonth MOD 2) = 0 THEN // If even month (assuming odd months = 31 days and even months = 30 days) Month_30 := Month_31  1; // Number of 30 day months passed is one less than the number of 31 days months passed ELSE // Otherwise (odd month) Month_30 := Month_31; // Number of 30 day months passed equals the number of 31 days months passed END_IF; Elapsed_Days := (Month_30 * 30) + (Month_31 * 31); // Calculate number of elapsed days in complete elapsed months IF iMonth <> 2 THEN // If the complete month of February has been passed IF (iYear MOD 4) = 0 THEN // If this year is a leap year... Elapsed_Days := Elapsed_Days  1; // ...then February has 29 days, so reduce already added 30 day month by 1 ELSE // ...Otherwise, it is not a leap year Elapsed_Days := Elapsed_Days  2; // ...so February has 28 days, so reduce already added 30 day month by 2 END_IF; END_IF; IF iMonth = 9 OR iMonth = 11 THEN // If month is September or November Elapsed_Days := Elapsed_Days + 1; // Take into account the July/August special case of non alternating 30, 31 month pattern END_IF; END_IF; OrdinalDay := Elapsed_Days + BCD_TO_INT(DaT.Day); // Add in the number of elapsed days in the current month WEEK_NUM := (OrdinalDay  DT_DAY(DateAndTime)  1 + 10) / 7; END_IF; END_FUNCTION_BLOCK [/code]

Hereś Smiffy's code impleented in TIA Portal; All variables are INT, exept for TMP_DTL, wich is "DTL" type. WEEK_NUM is an output variable.
