[WD24] BankHolidayAdd() function has odd syntax

Hello All

The BankHolidayAdd() function has quite odd syntax.

For a date that occurs every year on a specific month day (not a date) the help has the following example

A date in the following format: <Month>_<Week Number>_<Day Number in the Week>. For example: 11_2_3 for the 2nd Wednesday of November.

What is doesn't say is that the month value has to have a leading zero for a month less than 10 but the day number needs no padding and must be trimmed with nospace()
The following code works for me using a file called Holidays
BankHolidayAdd(NumToString(Holidays.MonthNum,"02d") +"_"+NumToString(Holidays.WeekNum,"1d") + "_"+ NoSpace(NumToString(Holidays.DayNum,"2d")))
