Abstract

A data structure is described that provides a common way for applications to: (1) store and interchange the work week pattern associated with an individual's calendar work week, (2) create, change or delete the Work-Week Pattern Data Structure from a remote terminal or system using communications protocol, (3) specify the work-week pattern for a calendar, and (4) support the selection of any combination of days for the work week. This structure provides fields for like and unlike calendar products to interchange the work-week pattern associated with a selected calendar. The structure is a common way to specify what the work days are in a calendar. It also supports, with an algorithm, the establishment of work-day indicators on a calendar.
