What is the 3rd Saturday from 6/1/2004? It would be 6/19/2004. This calculation figures those type of questions for you. Handy for identifiying dates that might be bunched together for batch processing. Multiple dates could be pointed to the same end date depending on what day of the week the start date is and what day of the week is selected to match to.
