On this page you can find information about the 'Moving Operation' files and you can download them.

Moving Operations are one of the very strong points of the PTBSync program.

All the days in the files have rules to calculate them, but sometimes there are also exceptions.
Example: In France Mother Day is on the last Sunday in May, BUT if day happens to be Pentecost, Mother Day is moved to the 1st Sunday in June (which is the next Sunday).

The Moving Operation files solve those problems, they are only executed under fixed conditions (the same as "IF", "THEN").

Here is a list of all the MovingOperation files in use for displaying all the chapters made for the PTBSyn program. The MovingOperation files included in the program and the MovingOperation files I made for the additional chapters on this website.

This page permits you to see what happens when the program (automatically) uses these files.
It can also be usefull if you make yourself your own chapters and perhaps you need a MovingOperation to solve the exceptions.

Normally all these files (except the rare very new ones) are included (and automatically installed) with the PTBSyn program.
All these files are included in my ZIP-files, or they can one-by-one be downloaded from all different pages and also from this page.

If you want to use a MovingOperation file, simply place it in the 'holidays' directory on your PC.
[Usually C:\Program Files\PTBSync\Holidays]
