Description:

This function works more or less as the inverse function of WeekOfYearFiscal(), which is built into Filemaker. Only instead of calculating the weeknumber, it calculated the date for the given day of the given weeknr.

The function can also be used to calculate a particular occurrence of a day in a given month:
WeekFiscalToDate ( Year ; WeekOfYearFiscal ( Date ( Month ; 7 * occurrence ; Year ) ; Firstweekday ) ; Firstweekday )
example: You'd like to calculate the 3rd occurrence of thursday in april:
WeekFiscalToDate ( 2013 ; WeekOfYearFiscal ( Date ( 4 ; 7 * 3 ; 2013 ) ; 5 ) ; 5 ) which would result into 4/18/2013
for 2014: 4/17/2014
for 2015: 4/16/2015
for 2016: 4/21/2016
