Edit Holiday Window
This window enables you to create and modify holiday
definitions. You can specify a holiday name and description as well as
a start date, finish date, and the duration (or length) of the holiday.
Additionally, you can indicate the calendar or calendars that the holiday is to
be associated with.
Holiday names can take either character or numeric values. A start date
is always required when defining a holiday.
The Name field is used to specify the name of the holiday. The holiday
name can be either character or numeric. A longer description can be given
in the Description field.
The Description field enables you to store a short
description about the holiday. A description is purely optional and is used for
identification purposes only.
The Holiday Start Date field is used to indicate the calendar date that
represents the start of the holiday. The start date is required. The value
can be entered with either a DATEw. (that is, 01MAY1998) or a DATETIMEw. (that is,
01MAY1998:08:30:00) format. Alternatively, by pressing the Start: button,
you can access an Edit Date window to specify the desired value.
The Holiday Finish Date field can be used to indicate the calendar date that
represents the finish of the holiday. The finish date is not required; however,
if not specified, the holiday will last only one
duration unit (as defined for the project) unless
the length of the holiday is specified in the Holiday Duration
field. The finish date value can be entered with either a DATEw. (that is, 01MAY1998) or a DATETIMEw. (that is, 01MAY1998:16:59:59) format. Alternatively,
by pressing the Finish: button, you can access an Edit Date window
to specify the desired value.
The Holiday Duration field can be used to specify the length of the holiday.
Duration values are specified in the units of the project's
duration unit. The duration is optional, but it is
assumed to be 1 if the holiday finish date is not provided.
If the holiday finish date is specified, the duration is ignored.
Pressing the Calendars... button opens a window for indicating which project
calendar or calendars the holiday is to be associated with. If no calendars are specified
in the list, the holiday is assigned to ALL calendars.
The Calendars window contains a list of calendars that the current holiday is
assigned to. To remove calendars, simply select the calendar to be removed and
press the Remove button. To add calendars to the list, press the Add
button. A list of all calendars is displayed and if you select individual
calendar entries, they are added to the holiday's calendar assignments.
