On : version, Analytics


When the user used the function DAYOFWEEK() in conjunction with other columns that are mapped to physical columns in the rpd, they receive correct results. (1st day of week being Monday).

However,when the user uses such columns, they receive an incorrect result (1st day of week being Sunday).


DayofWeek should give the 1st day of week as "Sunday" by default.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Login to Analytics. Pull a "Calendar Date" column.
2. Again pull the same column and use "Edit Formula" and use the function ==> DAYOFWEEK("Time"."Calendar Date"). Test the results.
3. Remove the original column and test the results.
