Why is my Friday considered as next week?

Options

Hello Smartsheet Community,

I'm currently setting up few formulas for Admin Dashboard. So I would a certain date period be counted as This Week or Next Week.

This Week:

=IF(WEEKDAY([Start Date]@row) = 1, IF(AND(YEAR(TODAY()) = YEAR([Start Date]@row), WEEKNUMBER(TODAY()) = WEEKNUMBER([Start Date]@row + 1)), "Current Week"), IF(WEEKDAY([End Date]@row) > 1, IF(AND(YEAR(TODAY()) = YEAR([End Date]@row), WEEKNUMBER(TODAY()) = WEEKNUMBER([End Date]@row)), "Current Week")))

Next Week:

=IF(WEEKDAY([Start Date]@row) = 1, IF(AND(YEAR(TODAY()) = YEAR([Start Date]@row), WEEKNUMBER(TODAY()) = WEEKNUMBER([Start Date]@row)), "Next Week"), IF(WEEKDAY([End Date]@row) > 1, IF(AND(YEAR(TODAY()) = YEAR([End Date]@row), WEEKNUMBER(TODAY()) + 1 = WEEKNUMBER([End Date]@row)), "Next Week")))

My Today() is 23/5/2024

Everything works well, but when I tried 24/5/2024 - 28/05/2024, it considered that as Next Week instead.

    It is because of how you have your formula written. Since the weekday of [Start Date] is not 1, it moves on to evaluating the [End Date] weekday. The [End Date] weekday is greater than 1 and the year matches, but the week number is not the same as today's week number.

    In your next week formula, the same is true in that it is evaluating the [ENd DAte]. Since that week number is today's week number plus 1, it is outputting "Next Week".
