Description Usage Arguments Value See Also Examples

View source: R/accessdb.R

Description

This function coerces date strings i.e. "YYYY-MM-DD" or "YYYY-MM", years e.g. 2015 (numeric or character), year-quarters e.g. "2015Q1" or "2015-Q1", year-months e.g. "2015M01" or "2015-M01", fiscal years e.g. "1997/98" or numeric values representing dates (e.g. previously imported Excel date) to a regular R date.

Usage

1
make_date(x, end = FALSE, origin = "1899-12-30")

Arguments

x

a character date string "YYYY-MM-DD" or "YYYY-MM", year-quarter "YYYYQN" or "YYYY-QN", , year-month "YYYYMNN" or "YYYY-MNN", fiscal year "YYYY/YY" or calendar year YYYY (numeric or character), or a numeric value corresponding to a date that can be passed to as.Date.numeric.

end

logical. TRUE replaces missing time information with a period end-date which is the last day of the period. FALSE replaces missing month and day information with "-01", so the year date is the 1st of January, the fiscal year date the 1st of July, and for months / quarters the 1st day of the month / quarter.

origin

a date or date-string that can be used as reference for converting numeric values to dates. The default corresponds to dates generated in Excel for Windows. See as.Date.numeric.

Value

A Date vector.
