Re: zipping day of week from date

Hello Eric
Go to Repository-->Code-->Routines and create a new routine:
// template routine Java
package routines;
import java.util.Date;
import java.util.Calendar;
public class GetWeekDay {
static int day;
public static int getWeekDay(Date date) {
Calendar c = Calendar.getInstance();
day = c.get(java.util.Calendar.DAY_OF_WEEK);
if (day == 1) { // means it is SATURDAY;
day = day + 6;
} else {
day = day - 1;
return day;

Then, call this routine on tMap:
Best regards
