# Beastmode to get first week of month

Hi,

I am currently trying to get a field that displays the value for the first week of the month.

Currently I have it written as

(CASE
WHEN
WEEK(DATE_SUB(CURDATE(), INTERVAL 2 WEEK)) = WEEK(`ORDERSTARTDATE_DATE`)
THEN (`carrier pay`)
END)
/
(CASE
WHEN
WEEK(DATE_SUB(CURDATE(), INTERVAL 2 WEEK)) = WEEK(`ORDERSTARTDATE_DATE`)
THEN (`Loads`)
END)

However, I know next week ill have to change the interval to 3 in order to get the first week of the month.

Any advice on how to make this beastmode work better?

• Coach I would dynamically determine the first day of the month by doing this:

1. `DATE_SUB(`dt`, INTERVAL (DAYOFMONTH(`dt`) - 1) DAY)`

and then wrap the week function around this to figure out the week number. This would give you the first week of the month.

• Coach You would want to remove CURDATE() from your formula and base it off of your orderstartdate. Something like this:

```(CASE WHEN WEEK(DATE_SUB(ORDERSTARTDATE_DATE, INTERVAL (DAYOFMONTH(ORDERSTARTDATE_DATE) - 1) DAY)) = WEEK(ORDERSTARTDATE_DATE)
THEN (carrier pay)END)
/
(CASE WHEN WEEK(DATE_SUB(ORDERSTARTDATE_DATE, INTERVAL (DAYOFMONTH(ORDERSTARTDATE_DATE) - 1) DAY)) = WEEK(ORDERSTARTDATE_DATE)
END)
```

• Worked perfectly, thanks again Mark.

• Hey Mark,

Another quick question. I am unable to change the range of the date field to the prior month. Would I need to do another date_sub and interval it by one month?
