Analytica includes group of Date Functions specifically designed to create and manipulate date values. But there are also some common functions which, although they are typically applied to standard numerical values, include optional parameters to handle dates. This page links to all functions that handle dates.

# The dateUnit Parameter

The *dateUnit* parameter is available in several rounding functions. It must be called explicitly and replaces the *digits* parameter.

Functions that use the *dateUnit* parameter:

dateUnit values include: - 'Y' for Year - 'Q' for Quarter - 'M' for Month - 'WD' for Weekday - 'D' for Day - 'h' for Hour - 'm' for minute - 's' for second

Note that some of these are distinguished by case.
