File Name: getPrevWeeksOHLC.efs

Utility formula that returns a single value or an array of values for previous weeks' Weekly open, high, low and close data.

Formula Parameters:
sPriceSource: Default is Close (valid inputs: Open, High, Low or Close).
nOffset: Default is -1
nNumWeeks: Default is 1

This formula is intended to be used by other custom formulas to access previous weeks' weekly values that can then be used with formulas that need to plot the weekly data on intra-day or daily intervals. Save this formula to /eSignal/Formulas/OHLC/ and use the callFunction() function from within your custom formula. DownloadPrevWeeksHHLL.efs to see a working example.
The example formula will return the previous two weeks' highest high and lowest low.
